(solution) Processor #1 has die area 1.97 cm 2 and die yield 0.73 when

Processor #1 has die area 1.97 cm2and die yield 0.73 when manufactured on wafers with diameter 30 cm.

  1. If processor #2 contains two cores (i.e. two copies of processor #1) and can still be sold as a working chip if only one of the cores has no defects, determine the yield for these half-working chips. If chips with two working cores are sold for twice the price of chips with only one working core, determine the prices which will produce $3000 profit per wafer.
