Moore’s Law to Mark 40th Anniversary

“Countless ‘experts’ have been predicting the imminent demise of Moore’s Law for at least 20 years,” says George Scalise, SIA president. “They have all been wrong, thanks to a relentless commitment to extending the frontiers of science by the industry, university researchers, and the federal government. Our nation’s economic growth, standard of living, and national security are all heavily dependent on continued leadership in semiconductor technology. There are many economic, physical, and technological obstacles that could slow or halt progress, according to Moore’s Law. Scientists throughout the world are working to be the first to overcome these obstacles. While the resources required to continue progress are significant, the rewards for leadership in microelectronics are enormous. Our highest priority at SIA is keeping the U.S. semiconductor industry at the forefront of technology.”
