Book review: CHIPS 2020 updates essential view of nanoelectronics
CHIPS 2020 Vol 2: New Vistas in Nanoelectronics, edited by Bernd Hoefflinger, follows on from the successful CHIPS 2020: A Guide to the Future of Nanoelectronics, published in 2012.

The breadth of the coverage means that the book limits itself to presenting and documenting the state-of-the-art, but to have that benchmarked from so many specialist subject areas and so well, is a rare and valuable thing. Although descriptions are often – by necessity – lean they are accompanied by numerous illustrations and the text is well referenced. The book does a good job at "covering the waterfront" with starting points and references to enable interested readers to make their way into the technology hinterland.

This book is suitable for the student, researcher or recent graduate that wants to understand where the challenges lie in chips and for managers, investors and policy makers. It is suitable for all and is written with the issue of sustainability and engineering responsibility at its core.

Bernd Hoefflinger's career in microelectronics has included time in the United States as assistant professor of electrical engineering at Cornell University, before returning to Germany as Siemens' first manager of MOS products and then going on to co-found the University of Dortmund. Professorships at Minnesota and Purdue preceded the formation in 1985 of the Institute for Microelectronics, Stuttgart (IMS), which he helped establish as a leader in high dynamic range CMOS image sensors. He retired in 2006.

The 319-page hardback book is published by Springer in its Frontiers Collection and comes with 127 illustrations, 90 in color. The book is priced at $59.99/£37.99/€52.74 in hardback and at $39.99/£29.99/€41.64 as an e-book.
