Researchers Shrink Transistor Gate to One Nanometer

October 13, 2016

A team of US scientists may have just breathed new life into a faltering Moore’s law and advanced the limits of microelectronic miniaturization with the fabrication of a transistor with a 1nm gate. The breakthrough portends a path beyond silicon-based transistors, which have been widely predicted to hit a wall at 5-nanometers. Read more…

Intel’s Fryman: “It’s not that we love CMOS; it’s the only real choice.”

September 1, 2016

Forget for a moment the prevailing high anxiety over Moore’s Law’s fate. In the near-term – which could easily mean a decade – CMOS will remain the only viable, volume technology driving computing. Pursue alternatives? Of course, urged Josh Fryman, principal engineer and engineering manager, Intel. Read more…

Transistors Won’t Shrink Beyond 2021, Says Final ITRS Report

July 28, 2016

The final International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) is now out. The highly-detailed multi-part report, collaboratively published by a group of international semiconductor experts, offers guidance on the technological challenges and opportunities for the semiconductor industry through 2030. One of the major takeaways is the insistence that Moore's law will continue for some time even though traditional transistor scaling (through smaller feature sizes) is expected to hit an economic wall in 2021.
