ISSCC Plenary Talk: Dynamics of Exponentials in Circuits and Systems


At the International Solid State Circuits Conference in San Francisco in February, Dr. Ahmad Bahai, CTO of Texas Instruments, argued that exponential growth will be maintained in the performance of a variety of electronic and computing applications, even as the traditional Moore’s Law scaling of transistor size and density stalls. This will require engineering innovations including 3D integration, novel circuit and system architectures, and improved packaging and manufacturing.

Dr. Bahai’s paper in the ISSCC proceedings is available here and a news article on his presentation is available here.
