The 20nm node can offer power, performance and area advantages, but making these gains takes a deep understanding of the interactions between process and design.
The 14nm and 16nm processes cover a range of technologies and are designed to succeed the 20nm generation. They bring with them a number of design challenges.
Increasingly complex design rules in 14nm and 16nm make it harder to connect local routing to the inputs and outputs (pins) of standard cells.
