ARM Sizes Up Moore's Law

SAN JOSE, Calif. — It’s getting harder and more costly to make chips smaller and faster, but there is still hope for advancing Moore’s Law, according to a keynote at the annual International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM ) in Washington D.C. this week. In a broad and balanced talk, a senior researcher at ARM detailed the variety of techniques and challenges ahead. “The semiconductor industry will need to push equivalent Moore’s Law scaling through a broadening set of fronts…in an ‘all-of-the-above’ effort [that] will include more technology complexity, investment in technology-design optimizations, and ultimately technology-system optimizations,” Greg Yeric of ARM Research in Austin wrote in an IEDM paper. To combat “an increasing set of design limitations, including power limits, parasitics, variability, and of course cost,” engineers will need to employ a host of remedi...
