Intel says now it can Pack more than 100 Million Transistors in Each Square Millimeter of silicon wafer . For the first time of electronics industry intel is going to keep moore’s law alive .
In 1965 Intel co-founder Gordon Moore developed a observative law called Moore’s law . moore observed that number of transistors per square inch on an integrated circuits had doubled every year since their invention, and also he predicted that it will continue till the research is continue . But the number that can pack inside a silicon wafer has certain limitation because the materials inside a chip is finite .
During Intel’s first Technology and Manufacturing Day, intel claim that moores law is still alive at least for intel .The new advancement of photo lithography machine they will able to do so . With the help of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technique they are going to pack 100 million transisoro per square millimeter of silicon wafer .By doing so it is expected that cost per bit of a integrated ic will reduce and memory size will going to increase . But the speed is the main challenging part of intel engineers .
It is recent trend to say moores law is dead but it isn’t “All these things are difficult, but once they’re done they seem normal. And that’s the magic of Moore’s Law.” – Intel’s Kaizad Mistry
