Microprocessors are powerful devices and it is, therefore, not to be wondered at that their popularity has grown so fast in such a short time. A disadvantage remaining until recently was the need of several more les to design a complete microprocessor system. Since more components require more space and result in higher casts, a demand arose for more powerful system components to simplify the design of a microprocessor circuit. US chip manufacturer Wafer Scale has responded to this need with the introduction of its PSD3xxx family.
