RESEARCH PAPER: Silicon Photonics Are Here And GlobalFoundries Is Innovating

By Patrick Moorhead - November 15, 2022

One of the most impressive feats of the twenty-first century has been the innovation of processers with advancements in size, complexity, and capabilities. Since Gordon Moore first postulated that the number of transistors would double every generation, the semiconductor industry has invented ways to make transistors smaller. Moore's theory, commonly known as “Moore's Law”, has driven the semiconductor market and propelled the complexity of processors to a point where transistor size cannot be measured accurately.
