Abstract

The progress of CMOS devices downsizing, either by shortening the gate-length/half-pitch spacing or by folding the channel width, will be ended in a couple of generations. However, Moore's Law will continue to grow for at least another decade by adopting some emerging technologies such as 3D stacking in IC manufacturing or time scaling for device operation. Meanwhile, the significant advancement in the More-than-Moore, in the aspects of applications, system architecture, computing strategy, and networking technology domains, would empower an ordinary digital device to have much high-speed or even supercomputing capability. In effect, an ordinary digital device would virtually own lots more processors than it physically has. That is, 'More Moore' will no longer rely on the smaller size of transistors or higher density of individual chips, it will be powered by More-than-Moore. This article is dedicated to the late Prof. Dr. Ninoslav Stojadinovic, the General Chair of International Conference on Microelectronics (MIEL) in 32 series, lost the fight with Covid-19 on 25 December 2020, to the significant scientific achievements in the area of microelectronics he had accomplished, to the high promise of professional services he had provided, to the tremendous effort and excellency he had devoted in establishing and enriching the MIEL community.
