Summary: Mark Bohr remembers the 40 years of Moore's Law that he presided over during his career at Intel, including what he feels was accomplished and lessons he could impart about innovation at scale. In this first video, he lays out 4 distinct eras of Moore's Law and describes the first two, The Memory and Dennard Scaling Eras, what drove the changes from a device, process, and end market perspective. Three more videos are to follow, which include: The Power Constrained Era, The Scaling + Heterogeneous Integration Era, and Bohr’s Rules of Innovation.
As many know, Mark is a Senior Fellow and Director of Process Architecture and Integration at Intel. His track record of innovation is amazing in terms of the number of nodes he’s presided over. Especially when you consider that innovation in semiconductors is done on a massive scale. It’s far more than just having an idea. At Mark's level, it’s largely about having the leadership skills to align large numbers of people and resources toward a common goal.
Mark's success in this area is highly recognized, having been named an IEEE Fellow, plus being the recipient of the 2003 IEEE Andrew S. Grove Award and the 2012 IEEE Jun-Ichi Nishizawa Medal. In 2005 he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering and … inducted into the Semiconductor Hall of Fame in 2006 for his ability to drive the industry at the hard pace of Moore's Law.
weVISION is a series of video interviews of visionaries by G Dan Hutcheson, his career spans more than thirty years, in which he became a well-known as a visionary for helping companies make businesses out of technology. This includes hundreds of successful programs involving product development, positioning, and launch in Semiconductor, Technology, Medicine, Energy, Business, High Tech, Environment, Electronics, healthcare and Business divisions.
