Intel claims that Moore's Law is still possible to return to the previous course04.06.2019
The formulation of empirical regularities involves identifying the linkages between repeating events on the results of observations. And if any circumstances change, it is necessary to revise the wording. Intel's recently had to admit that the "grandfather clock" so-called Moore's Law started ticking less and less, and doubling the density of transistors per unit area of the semiconductor chip is now happening more than once in two years, and about every two and a half years. The "thinner" fabrication process and less the distance between the transistors and their elements, the more difficult to manufacture microprocessors with the requisite characteristics.
A recent meeting with investors Intel management has only confirmed that the company disguise its own failure in technology for dignity is a priority. However, Computerworld website sayings heard in Holt Bill (Bill Holt), who heads the technology of Intel, optimistic tone. Speaking to investors, Holt expressed the hope that in the future will be able to return to Moore's Law on track. At least in respect of 10 nm and 7 nm in tehprotsessov Intel has reason to improve the performance and scalability of costs as compared with not very successful 14-nm process.
Further reduction of technological norms requires all-consuming, but it will not stop on the way Intel maintain Moore's Law. Holt is confident that technological superiority over its competitors Intel will allow the company to remain a leader in the field of lithography. Some developments are carried out for decades and never put into practice, but the experience necessary to achieve the objectives in the future, in which Bill Holt remains confident.
