<p>During the past decade, interconnects have replaced transistors as the dominant determiner of chip performance. To sustain the historical rate of advance in performance, monolithic interconnect technology has rapidly evolved to keep pace withadvances in transistor density and performance. New and radically different interconnect technologies will become increasingly important to future gigascale microsystems.</p>
