This paper takes a closer look at the recent developments in process node technology in logic processors. As these types of processors have made the transition from the 45nm to the 30nm and, now, the 20nm process node, designers have had to make adjustments in their design methodologies as this process continues to scale downwards at a very fast rate. Using data from a recent comparative study conducted by UBM TechInsights, this paper details some of the major changes in design techniques engineers have made to accommodate the continuing scaling of logic processors.
