CHAPTER 8

Measurement of the Progress for More-than-Moore and Beyond CMOS

We also observed how the various drivers for More-than-Moore and Beyond CMOS would fit into this innovative business model. The progress of Moore’s law provided a well-defined goal for the measurement of progress, thereby driving the progress of global semiconductor industry. In this way, the business model for growth of global semiconductor industry based on the continued progress of Moore’s law was extremely predictable since its inception in 1965 till more recently. When new drivers like More-than-Moore and Beyond CMOS are introduced to drive ...
