Title: Strategies for Closing the ITRS Funding Gap
Published: August 18, 2008
Abstract: For over 35 years, each IC generation has doubled the transistor count while cutting the cost per function in half. This progress, described by Moore's Law, has resulted primarily from scaling device dimensions and wafer size. In reality, the 'Moore's Law' is not a law; it is not based on physical principles, and is thus not assured of continuation. For each generation, it works only if the cost per function can be reduced in the face of increasing process complexity.
