AMD turns to chiplets as Moore's Law slows

Oct. 10, 2019
"We need a new processor design approach to extend the historical gains seen over the past few decades into the decades to come," writes ADM CTO Mark Papermaster.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., - For more than five decades, Moore’s Law has governed the pace of innovation in the semiconductor industry – driving evolution in the computing space from the early desktops and laptops to cloud computing and Internet of Things today, writes Mark Papermaster for TechRadar.comContinue reading original article

The Intelligent Aerospace take:

October 10, 2019- Mil-aero computing has been taking a modular approach for a while now as the industry builds custom solutions based on building blocks that can be scaled up or down based on the needs of the customer or agency. That modular approach has been shrunk down to the processor level as AMD CTO Mark Papermaster writes that "If the design approach anticipates modular architecture, then portions of the design that are difficult to manufacture can be parsed into small die sizes. With small die, we get increased yield and increased number of chips per wafer, which will help further reduce manufacturing costs and increase production efficiency.
