CMOS Image Sensors Surpassing Moore’s Law

PORTLAND, Ore. — Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) imaging chips are becoming the industry's leader in advanced process technology — instead of the traditional leaders (processors and memory) — thanks to strong demand for CMOS imaging chips in everything from smartphones to tablets to medical equipment and automobiles. Apparently, now the innovation surpasses Moore's Law, says analyst firm Yole ...

Moore’s Law extends to cover human progress

Moore's Law, famous for predicting the exponential growth of computing power over 40 years, comes from a simple try-fail/succeed model of incremental improvement. The predictive success of Moore's Law seems uncanny, so let's take a closer look to get an idea of where it comes from. Moore conceived his law for computational power but Moore's-like growth laws permeate human endeavor—a fact that had never occu ...
