T.J. Rodgers on pols, nano and cussing
EET: There's talk that the next node out, 45 nanometers, is really where Moore's Law is going to hit the wall. We tend to think that about every next node, though. What's your take?
Rodgers: We're putting our 65-nm technology into production right now. We've generally lagged the big guys, who have a lot of money, by something like half a generation, but we've always been there all the way since 1982. I do not see technical barriers preventing Moore's Law from going forward. However, having said that, I do see an end to Moore's Law--and the end of Moore's Law will come in the boardroom, not in the wafer fabrication plant.
