pp. 14-15

Moore's law keeps providing electronic designers with ever-growing computational power. The list of applications enabled by this phenomenal and unprecedented explosion in human capabilities is continuously expanding. The combination of these two factors, together with the associated economic effects of increasing nonrecurrent engineering costs and decreasing chip costs, is shaping the landscape of electronics. Problems that in the past were either too expensive to solve in silicon or required a whole electronic board can now be tackled with a single chip, one that might have tens of millions of logic gates and could include both analog and digital parts.
