Plotting the future of memory

Q: How far down the Moore's Law road map go from your vantage point?

Mesri: We definitely have clear plans for the next migration. There's a lot of planning in advance you have to do. We have a clear understanding of what will be required from the standpoint of design rules and the next node, 32 nanometers, but beyond that it's not clear.

Bark: We all follow this year to year, and it continues to blow away expectations as to what is possible. Moore's Law continues. Our corporate goal is one technology a year. We have teams working on what's below 32 nanometers. We are also working on new architectures that can get us beyond that.

Q: Such as?

Bark: We haven't announced these yet. There are a number of startups looking at interesting technologies in this area. Some of them are nanotechnology-based, some of them are new physics implementations of what we're doing today.

Deen: We've been continually surprised. When we thought there was a wall, it moved. Wherever we perceive the wall to be, we are working on moving it further out.
