By Ackerman, Robert K The crystal ball is cloudy when it comes to the nature of future chips. Scientists are racing against the clock to develop a means of defeating an enemy that threatens to stop computer technology progress dead in its tracks. The threat is not terrorism; it is Moore's Law, as complementary metal oxide semiconductors are nearing their size and performance limits as defined by the laws of physics. Many computer experts have been predicting since the last millennium that...
