Progress in a given field of technology is both desired and expected to follow a stable and predictable long-term trajectory. Semilog plots of technology trends spanning decades in time and orders of magnitude in value abound. Perhaps the most famous exemplar of such a technology trajectory is the trend line associated with Moore’s law, where technology density has doubled every 12 to 18 months for several decades. One must not, however, be lulled into extrapolating such predictability to other aspects of semiconductor technology, such as device performance, or even to the long-term prospects for the continuance of device density scaling itself. New physical phenomena assert themselves as one approaches the limits of a physical system, as when device layers approach atomic dimensions, and thus, no extrapolation goes on indefinitely.
