DARPA's new Electronics Resurgence Initiative will look at what comes after Moore's Law
runs its course.
Using Moore's Law
as a starting point, let's assume that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every 18 months as a lower bound and every three years as an upper bound.
So overall, perpetuating Moore's Law
in the foreseeable future will require disruptive technologies which take the electronics industry beyond its silicon comfort zone.
"To me, the end of Moore's Law
is certain," Armstrong said.
Until now, Moore's Law
had ensured that the performance of computer chips doubled every 18 months.
The bulk of the evidence suggests information technology has delivered both technically and economically: it has achieved the promise of Moore's Law
in both its narrowest sense of transistor scaling and its broadest effect of widespread economic uplift.
Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of industrial automation components supplier European Automation, analyses the rate of technological progress and discusses the validity of Moore's Law
Expected growth is supported by the wider adoption of Cu pillar technology, as well as Moore's law
pushing beyond the 28nm node and "More than Moore" evolution in DDR and 3D ICs, according to the research firm.
BOHR: Moore's Law
is a driving force of technological, economic and social change and is a foundational force in modern life.
Our overall strategy is to build on core assets like the PC and move into new, adjacent markets such as the Internet of Things (IoT), all the while continuing our leadership through the power of Moore's Law
What's next Historically, improvements in energy efficiency have largely come as a byproduct of Moore's Law
-- the doubling of the number of transistors on a chip about every two years through ever smaller circuitry.
