The industry is secretly hoping for a must-use technology that will break in 5 years. Does this accomplish that business goal?
That's an ancient dream. According to an old-time engineer who was an early transistor user in the early 60s, that was the industry's goal back then: purposefully only slightly longer life than vacuum tubes.
He told me a story of meeting strong criticism from the semiconductor vendor when they found out his company was dipping transistors in paint to color-code parts that they (the customer) tested as better or worse. Device quality/performance was very uneven back then. The vendor's opposition to dipping didn't quite hold water. Turned out that the hollow metal packages weren't airtight as to allow in oxygen that would eventually degrade them. Dipping in paint sealed them. Foiled again!!
