Summary: They've been predicting Moore's Law would come to an end since the late sixties. There’s always some theoretical science model that says Moore’s Wall is only a few years away. Yet every two years, for more than forty, semiconductor companies prove them wrong and Intel is invariably first in-line to prove them wrong. Doing so means systematically making the impossible possible and it’s not magic.

In this interview with Brian M. Krzanich, done when he was senior vice president and general manager of Manufacturing and Supply Chain for Intel Corporation, we discuss how and why they keep extending Moore’s Law out. We address questions like,
— Does process technology matter?
— How does Intel’s technology leadership result in competitive advantage?
—Complexity has increased at a dramatic rate below 50nm…
— How does that create an opportunity for IDMs?
— What are the supply chain challenges?
— What about 450mm
— How important is it and why?
— How do you plan for it and what are the manufacturing considerations?
— Will you be able to upgrade 300mm fabs?
— What’s that all about?
