Moore’s Law and memory to hit physics wall

From Moore’s Law and memory to hit physics wall:

“You get into the 25nm regime, and there may need to be a new structure for nonvolatile memory,” said Mike Splinter, CEO of Santa Clara, Calif.-based Applied Materials Inc., the world’s biggest supplier of tools for making microchips. “I’m quite nervous about this, because 25nm is not that far away, and if you have to change a process in a couple generations, then that is really challenging,” Splinter said in a recent interview.

The transition to large solid state Drives might not be so clear cut.
