Mario Paniccia is an Intel Fellow, and director of the Photonics Technology Lab at Intel. At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco, we examined Photonics Technology with Paniccia. We also spoke with Jerry Bautista, director, Technology Management, in the Microprocessor Technology Labs at Intel, about developing software for the multi-core parallel processor platform. This is an Intel podcast.
You might think Moore’s Law comes with an ancillary set of steps on how to adhere to it. The Law essentially says that technology develops so swiftly that chip engineers can pack twice as many transistors on a piece of silicon every two years. Performance jumps dramatically but the business ...
SANTA CLARA, CA, September 19, 2006 (PodTech News) — Intel says its new experimental semiconductors could be the breakthrough the chip industry has been looking for — the one that will allow chips to keep pace with Moore’s Law. They’ll do this by using lasers instead of wires to shuttle around data. Semiconductor experts have been pointing to a possible end of the “Law” that predicts that chip performance will essentially double every 18 months.
