Continuing Moore’s Law Beyond the Limits of CMOS
Traditional technology scaling trends have slowed, motivating
many to proclaim the end of Moore’s law and the end of CMOS
process technology. While the alarmists predict a cataclysmic end
to computer systems, as we know them, an evolution to new
technologies is more likely.
This talk will explore the recent history of computing, the relative contributions of CMOS technology scaling, computer architecture improvements and the potential for new technology to save the day. These new computer systems will create the fifth epoch of computing.
