Abstract:


—June 12 Meeting in SF Will Address the Future of Microelectronics—

Semiconductor Industry Association to Host Media Roundtable on the Future of Moore’s Law

SAN FRANCISCO, CA | Posted on June 2nd, 2008

Scientists and engineers in the chip industry frequently talk about "red brick walls" - key problems or obstacles rooted in the laws of physics that are potential "showstoppers" for the continuous advances we have come to expect under Moore's Law for more than 40 years. Ten years ago, products such as pocket-sized digital media players, GPS navigation systems, and portable medical diagnostic equipment would have been impossible. New devices that now exist only in the imagination of creative engineers depend on continuous advances in chip technology to become real products.

Observers have been asking "How long can Moore's Law continue in effect before it is overtaken by the laws of physics?" and "What will it mean if the ‘red brick walls' slow or curtail the progress we have taken for granted?"

A distinguished panel of industry experts will address these questions and other issues at a San Francisco Media Day sponsored by the Semiconductor Industry Association on June 12. Space restrictions will limit attendance to 25 journalists on a first-come, first-served basis.

Here are the details:

Date:


June 12, 2008

Time:


10:00 AM - 12:00 Noon Panel presentations and Q&A
