NanoCanada, in partnership with Huawei, hosted a FREE workshop featuring Canadian researchers who are looking beyond Moore’s law by designing new materials, better architectures, and new ways to boost computational capabilities.
In 1965, Gordon E. Moore, cofounder of Intel and Fairchild Semiconductors published his observation that during a seven-year period from 1958 to 1965, the number of transistors on an integrated circuit had doubled every 18-24 months and the price had dropped by half at the same time. This model known as Moore’s law has driven the information and communication technology industry to double the performance and functionality of digital electronics roughly every 2 years within a fixed cost, power and area. But miniaturization has its limits and the much anticipated atomic scale crunch is upon us with rising cost of fabrication and scale-related effects.
