Typically, they look for ways to make chips faster, more energy efficient, and cost-effective, while still using current fabrication techniques and materials. In light of this, companies are working on high-rise, multilayer chips. Instead of laying out the vast majority of a chips' circuitry on a single layer of silicon, they are making chips with circuitry arranged vertically as well as horizontally.
