15 March Moore’s Law – Bent not Broken

Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

IEEE CTS Life Member and Consultants Network March 2022 Joint Meeting

Date: March 15, 2022

Time: 6-8 PM CST

Title:  Moore’s Law – Bent not Broken

Speaker: Dennis Ferguson

Abstract: 

Much has been written about Moore’s Law. This presentation is not another revisitation of semiconductor scaling. Moore’s Law has been responsible for increased productivity and therefore higher standards of living across the globe. It is interesting to examine the impending end of Moore’s Law and what might replace it in the near term and foreseeable future. This is a highly speculative review of current industry trends and potential Moore’s Law extensions.
