Scaling of CMOS Integrated Circuit is becoming difficult, due mainly to rapid increase in power dissipation. How will the semiconductor technology and industry develop? This paper discusses challenges and opportunities in system LSI from three levels of perspectives: transistor level (physics), IC level (electronics), and business level (economics).
