The wiring ability of multilayer interconnects is examined. It is shown why the principal force driving interconnection technology has been the computer. Measuring the flexibility of a given technology by the number of ways it allows a designer to interconnect devices to realize a particular logical function is discussed. It is shown that the ability to construct very large systems with high-density wiring stems directly from digital representation and the preservation of a given digital representation through long series of operations. The future of interconnection technology is explored.<>
