ABSTRACT
This article provides a quantitative comparison of VLSI, MCM and WSI on the basis of silicon area, substrate size and power consumption. These parameters are estimated and then calculated for two example processors: a stand-alone computer and a specialized DSP processor. For both examples, the MCM chips should cost the least in production, but they require the largest (and presumably the most expensive) package and will consume the most power.
