Feature sizes and the IoT
The economics of consumer electronics is driving ever smaller semiconductor feature sizes, also known as "nodes." The node size determines a transistor's minimum gate width. The latest node is 14 nm – only 140 times the size of a hydrogen atom! At this size, only a hundred electrons or so distinguish between a 1 and a 0. For embedded systems, the march to ever smaller nodes should have ended long ago. Unfortunately, embedded system engineers have little or no control over what nodes are in production.
