Package Converter Compliments Chip Obsolescence
The Semiconductor industry enabling today's electronics market place is widely disseminated between multiple customer factions such as consumer electronics, telecommunications, automotive, medical devices, military, aerospace, industrial controls, embedded computing and other industries. A component's life cycle for each industry varies drastically from 6 months to 10 years. The Semiconductor industry governed by realization of "Moore's law" states doubling of the number of devices (or gates) per integrated circuit will occur, within a given geometric area, on regular 18 month intervals. This requires new processes, capital equipment, and new materials for next generation devices every two years.
