- Q1: The figure on page 2 graphs relative manufacturing cost per
component against the number of components per integrated circuit.
Why do the chips become less cost effective per component for both
very large and very small numbers of components per chip?
- Q2: One of the potential problems which Moore raises (and dismisses)
is heat. Do you agree with Moore's conclusions? Either justify
or refute Moore's conclusions.
- Q3: A popular misconception of Moore's law is that it states that the
speed of computers increases exponentially, however, that is not
what Moore foretells in this paper. Explain what Moore's law
actually says based on this paper.
