DescriptionBespoke (or tailored) silicon refers to chips and 3D-IC systems developed by a company for its exclusive use in its systems. Leading system companies such as Google, Tesla, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft have newly built or acquired IC design teams to design bespoke silicon to give themselves an advantage over their competitors using off-the-shelf chips. They are bringing their systems expertise into the 3D-IC chip design world and this is changing the dynamics of the semiconductor market in sometimes unexpected ways. This Pavilion roundtable gathers senior designers of Bespoke Silicon to discuss their motivations and experiences in this emerging market.
