For about fifty years, IC designers have been relying on different types of semiconductor scaling to achieve gains in performance. How do they do it when Moore’s Law and Dennard Scaling have been broken?
The Moore’s law has had remarkably long validity of almost half a century. Today, however, it is ceasing to apply, opening new pressing questions such as: How to make up for the fact that chip size cannot be effectively reduced any more? What is the new way to improve performance? Roddy’s blogpost digs into one of the most promising answers: Core customization. Read on!
