It is actually amazing that todays chips work so reliable. The problem of electromigration
is indeed known for a hundred years and if you are interested there's of course a wikipedia
entry: < https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromigration >.
An no, that's not an April fools joke.

The problem is not only the chips themselves, but also the bonding to the outside world,
as gold, which is often used,  is rather ductile.

Best regards,
