SAN JOSE, Calif. – The semiconductor road map is shifting as advances in semiconductor technology become harder and market drivers become more diverse. That’s the message from this year’s VLSI Symposia, an annual gathering of top chip technologists that released its program this week.
More than 220 papers at the event will describe innovations to drive process technology to 10nm and beyond. Another 350 will describe circuits that squeeze power consumption for use in the Internet of Things, automotive electronics and big data analytics.
The event’s plenary sessions make clear the times are changing.
A panel of experts from companies such as Intel, IBM and Globalfoundries will discuss the implications of the slowdown in chip scaling in a session entitled “More Moore, More than Moore or Mo(o)re Slowly.” A separate panel will discuss “Semi Business beyond Scaling.”
