We are all indebted to Intel’s great scientist, Dov Frohman, for the development of the original “floating gate” technology, which made possible EPROM‘s, electronically programmable read only memories, and later E2PROM, electrically erasable and programmable memory, now known as “flash memory.”  As with Gordon Moore’s Law, physics has discovered the next generation of “flash”, which will also dramatically reduce the energy required to operate flash memory. This dramatic reduction in required energy opens doors to new applications, and reduced demand on battery technology, which is also pushing at its limits.  The net net of all this are potentially bright prospects for mobile devices and their capabilities well into the future.

Meanwhile, Moore’s Law is being pushed by developments in quantum computing which hold the potential to further extend Moore’s Law.
