    Andrew Kahng, a professor at the University of California, San Diego, and an expert on high-performance chip design, says the chip industry has made it a priority to keep up the pace of Moore's Law, ensuring that manufacturers can continue to build and release new product families while using a new process every 18 to 24 months. This means there hasn't been time to explore a number of design trick... View full abstract»

    I am standing in a twilit underground lab looking at the most powerful car headlight in the world. Its source, a blue-laser diode, is 1000 times as bright as an LED but uses just two-thirds the energy. I had to surrender my passport to see it, for I'm at BMW's highly secure, steel-and-glass research mecca, the FIZ (for Forschungs- und Innovationszentrum, or Research and Innovation Center), an imme...
