Moore’s Law has been the force that has shaped the modern world enabling chips with billions of transistors. Yet today, when we need Moore’s Law more than ever, the rate of semiconductor scaling is slowing, requiring system architects to take a new approach to continue the pace of performance gains in computing. Heterogenous compute architectures with purpose-built silicon hold the key to the next great chapter of semiconductor industry as we enter the accelerator era.
