Technology for the Future – Moore’s LawBy: Alex Rugguri, Jessica Miele, Kemi Ajibare, and Matt Price
Processors – Desktops & Laptops Smaller, stronger, and more energy-efficient Two major players: Intel and AMD Intel Sandy Bridge (32nm) Ivy Bridge (22nm) USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt AMD Bulldozer Piledriver
3D Transistors Tri-gate transistors replace flat, two-dimensional streams of transistors with a 3D structure. The technology will allow Intel to create transistors that are faster (37%), smaller and more power-efficient (50%).
Moore’s Law The ability for more powerful chips to be produced at a cheaper price every eighteen months. It’s possible because distance between the pathways inside silicon chips gets smaller with each successive generation.
End of Moore’s LawThe shrinking will eventually hit a limit. The three driving forces are size, heat, and power. The chip pathways are unable to be shorter than a molecule. The risk of quantum tunneling occurring.
Technological Footprint According to Moores law there will be a time when we reach the smallest usable footprint. It hasn’t occurred yet, but we are getting closer to reaching it. Some say it will happen in the near future. One person estimated the time will be around 2023.
Future of technology The future of technology is almost unpredictable Hard to determine whether ideas & products will be successful or not How long will a successful product last?
Future Technology Predictions All touch screen and hands-on products Scanning will also gather information Active workspaces Meetings will have intelligent participation Managing from any device Easier maneuvering of tasks
Future Predictions- Computing Cloud computing SASS- form of cloud computing, portable, subscribes to 3rd party software Supercomputing- hundreds of microprocessors working in unison
Computing cont. Social computing Ubiquitous computing- information processing is integrated into everyday objects Grid computing- enables multiple computers working together to solve a problem
Are future products beneficial to the business community? We think these products will be effective Products will help businesses survive and thrive More advanced, faster products will help to complete work & tasks
