Semiconductor opportunities in the saturating CMOS scaling era to enable advances in wireless chipsets

Market demand for advanced features in wireless, automotive autonomy, and IOT are accelerating at the same time when power and performance and area scaling in advanced CMOS is rapidly slowing. System level Co-optimizations are increasingly discussed as options to overcome the challenge. Splitting and Integrating many of the chips and the associated passives are clearly an opportunity. The challenges in developing and adopting this system opt will be reviewed with some specific examples.
