SOC at Apple: Evolution through Innovation
An IET EngTalk in collaboration with Apple
2 December 2019 | IET London: Savoy Place
Moore’s law is the observation that the number of transistors in integrated circuits doubles roughly every two years, while the cost halves. With no sign of the demands on silicon slowing down, is Moore’s law going to continue to provide the same benefits the industry has come to expect over the last 50 years? What do silicon design teams need to do to ensure that they can continue to deliver the performance and features year after year?
The IET and Apple are delighted to bring you the latest in our EngTalk series, “SOC at Apple: Evolution through Innovation’’ which explores cutting-edge innovation and engineering excellence in silicon design.
