Moore predicts more computing advances

Moore's Law, the guiding principle that maps progress in electronics and computing, has another decade of unhindered success to look forward to.

But Dr Gordon Moore, the creator of this legendary measurement, told a meeting of the world's top chip designers and engineers on Monday that its future will depend on their ability to innovate.

"It will be a real challenge," Dr Moore told the 50th anniversary meeting of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco.

"No exponential is forever. Your job is to delay forever."

In 1965 Gordon Moore stated that the number of transistors on a semiconductor would double roughly every two years, as would overall chip performance.
