Re: Here's an idea -
No it's 'cat 20' cos obviously it uses kelvin but in units where 0K is -127 and 0 is 0C so you just use this other tool to generate a file with the value closest to 20C

That's the reason for the chips.
A copper wire circuit from every control, through the body to the steering wheel and then to the battery is a lot of copper and a lot connectors
A single power wire and a thin canbus cable running around the car is a lot cheaper, even with a canbus switch at each gadget
A deeply cynical UK govt could declare that the imaginary line WAS the border but simply not enforce it. The UK can easily stop waves of migrants by the various airlines and ferries requiring ID for purely marketing purposes.
The Irish govt would be responsible for securing the Eu border as required by their Eu membership. If they weren't able to do this for whatever reason, the Eu has a border force it can deploy
What sort of referendum in N Ireland could solve the problem of a border with "The South" ?
For extra bonus points the unionists could then all move to Scotland and we could get that lot to go independent.
Then it only leaves southern England to melt / sink into the waves / fall victim to a plague of zombie estate agents (delete as appropriate) and "Global Yorkshire" will be free.
It also depends on what chips you are making
With larger chips (ie server class CPUs) the larger wafer wastes less space around the edges - think tiling a square chip on a circular wafer. with smaller chips these edge-losses are less.
You used to make it back by putting a few smaller chips in the corners, since your process costs are basically per mm^2, but now for sub 10nm features the multi-layer process is so closely tied to the chip you are making you can't mix+match easily at the high end.
As for the business risk, I think that has all changed anyway. You have one maker of mask-steppers, one maker of light sources, one supplier of wafers and 2-3 customers for the cutting edge.
450mm is probably inevitable, the scaling laws just work in your favour
But now it will be TSMC forcing intel to spend $$$$ to play catch up.
What wou;d be super ironic is if Intel convince the US govt to pay them $$$$ to build 300nm "cutting edge" fabs in the USA just as TSMC opens a 450mm line
Didn't PP introduce a rule that if you could obtain another citizenship you can be deported for committing a crime?
Rishi can presumably get an Indian spousal visa, I don't know what Uganda's immigration rules are on offspring but presumably she would be happy to stay in sunny Rwanda while it's sorted out
