Default Moore's Law fails to make cheap chips

Broadcom Chairman and CTO Henry Samueli has warned that Moore's Law is breaking down and is not making chips cheaper these days.

Talking to IT World, Samueli said that propping up Moore’s Law was now so expensive in terms of development, it cancelled out the cost savings that should come with each new generation.

Samueli, who co-founded Broadcome in 1991, said that the cost curves are getting flat and instead of more speed, less power consumption and lower cost with each generation, chip makers now have to choose two out of three.

New techniques such as High-K Metal Gate and FinFET are now being used to achieve new process nodes and the most advanced process node on the market will hit 14 nanometers next year.

However, at levels like that, chipmakers need more than traditional manufacturing techniques to achieve the high density, Samueli said. The denser chips get, the more expensive it will be to make them.
