Intel undoubtedly leads the industry with research into new technologies such as high-k/metal gate and tri-gate transistors that will enable it to continue the 2-year cycle of Moore's Law for the foreseeable future

42 years ago, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore saw the future and his prediction, now popularly known as Moore's Law, states that the number of transistors on a chip doubles about every two years. For some Moore’s law is about more performance while for some it is about decreasing costs. Moore's Law is only 11 words long, but it's one of the most misunderstood statements in technology.

If Google’s Eric Schmidt said "Never bet against Moore's Law", then in 2003, Michael Kanellos editor at large at CNET in describing Myths of Moore’s Law said “When you think of it, Moore's Law isn't about progress; it lays down the rule for the arms race”.

Vice President Technology & Manufacturing Group and Director Advanced Design Logic Technology Development, Intel Oregon USA who is none other than Proud to be a BITSian Sunit Rikhi, is currently on India Visit.

On Tuesday, 06th November 2007, Mr Rikhi visited his alma mater Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani Rajasthan where he was a student during 1974-1979 and delivered a lecture on Silicon Technology – Moore's Law in action which was organized by BITS Alumni Association (BITSAA).

His talk touched on several issues ranging from extending the lead at 45nm technology with High-k metal gate transistors to impact of Silverthorne on power and size. He highlighted the approaches behind alternating process and product for sustained leadership and the synchronization framework as well the process. He spoke at length on DFM information turn, Intel X chips and sub wavelength lithography.

He summarized his lecture stating that Moore’s law continues to provide economic benefit, synchronization of products & process technology is critical for extracting the most value and that co optimization with DFM technique is a key part of the synchronization process. At the end of the lecture, he fielded a volley of questions from students. Vice President BITSAA thanked Mr Sunit Rikhi for his alma mater passion quotient and presented him a special memento.

For sure BITS Alum Sunit Rikhi indeed believes standing tall in any crowd
