Die Size
(Redirected from Die size)

Die size refers to the physical dimensions of a bare die.


The die size of a specific chip is the physical dimensions of a bare die. In other words, the length and width of the integrated circuit. Since the die size and shape determines the total number of dies that may be realized from a single wafer of a certain size on a specific process node, the die size is a strong indicator of manufacturing cost.
