ECE Colloquium:

What Moore Didn’t Tell You About IC Technology

Gene Frantz

Principal Fellow, Texas Instruments

September 7, 2007, 2:00 p.m.

Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building, Rm. 1110

ABSTRACT: Even after 40 years Gordon Moore’s prediction about the trend of IC technology, we are still using his Law as a measurement of success. But, we are at a time in the history of IC technology where not all of what we have read into his Law is continuing to happen. Performance and power dissipation is no longer following the trend line we have learned to expect. But, even with that bad news, there is a lot of good news. This talk will cover four topics: 1) a brief history of IC technology, 2) the present state of the art, 3) what the future holds for us and 4) what are the issues we are facing.

BIO: Gene Frantz, one of the world’s foremost authorities in digital signal processing applications, is currently Principal Fellow at Texas Instruments (TI). As Principal Fellow, he heads TI’s Technical Advisory Board that provides long-term guidance to top management about emerging technical trends which may impact TI’s business and products.

Mr. Frantz is a Fellow of the Institution of Electric and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He holds 30 patents in the areas of memories, speech, consumer products and DSP. He has written more than 50 papers and articles and frequently presents at universities and conferences worldwide. He holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Central Florida, an MSEE from Southern Methodist University and an MBA from Texas Tech University.
