Intel's Moore's Law Video on Hafnium Transistor
Videos for Engineers

"Wanted: Gordon Moore for Another 40 Years"

That is the title of one of the latest videos from Intel. Moore's Law, formulated back in 1965 when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, states that the density of integrated circuits will double every two years. Gordon Moore was an engineer at Intel. Since that time, the IC industry has pretty much followed the prediction, but now with gate sizes approaching the atomic level, further shrinking is beginning to approach physical limits.

That was with silicon-only technology.

With its new 45nm high-k metal gate silicon technology based on hafnium, that size barrier has at least temporarily been removed to allow Moore's Law to live on. Intel is taking the opportunity to re-dub Silicon Valley as "Hafnium Valley."

Hafnium is element number 72, is normally separated from zirconium in its ore form. It is a metal that, prior to Intel's application, was used primarily in moderator rods in nuclear reactors.

The video below is set to the tune of "I Fought the Law and the Law Won," by Bobby Fuller.

Side note: Anyone notice that Intel , in the belly of the PC beast there in California, chose to show people using guns to kill each other?

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
