Overcoming the Next Set of Information Technology Hurdles
Every new generation of microchips is smaller, denser, and more powerful than the one that preceded it. That means the new chips offer more functionality at a lower price. However, it also means that they are harder to manufacture. For that reason, existing manufacturing technology is now being stretched further than anyone expected, and by the end of 2013, leading manufacturers will have reached the fundamental limits for those technologies. Where will they go from there? What are the implications? What can we expect? We’ll show you.
