Challenging physics by maintaining the Moore’s law and shrinking the transistor size is quickly coming to an end. The chip size is constantly reducing from 7nm to 5 nm and progressing towards 4 nm. As a result the semiconductor companies are finding different ways to enhance performance in positive direction. Chiplets are produced as an alternative way to complete chip design with clever new packaging and interconnect technologies. Basically, as a modern CPU typically includes the main compute engine, a memory controller, an I/O hub for connecting peripherals. The chiplet technology essentially breaks down such parts, optimize them for specific performance and integrate in Lego-block fashion.
