As 3D technologies become technologically viable, there is increasinginterest in determining the achievable payoff. This article first presents an overview of 3D technologies and introduces the motivation for moving from 2D to 3D. It then presents a case study of a fast-Fourier-transform design to illustrate the advantages of going to the third dimension.
