The More than Moore Award

SPONSORED BY CADENCE

For 50 years Moore’s Law has been the bell-weather of the semiconductor industry doubling the number of transistors in any given area every 18 months.  With state-of-the-art dimensions now measured in nanometres and the cost of production plant now measured in $Billions, Moore’s law scaling is largely predicted to be nearing its limits.

Whilst packing more transistors on a chip to add power and performance is still a key focus, developing novel MtM technologies on top of the Moore’s Law technologies to provide further values to semiconductor chips has also become a more important issue.

That’s what gave rise to MtM, which is symbiotic with Moore’s Law and allows non-digital functionalities to migrate from the system board-level into the package (SiP) or onto the chip (SoC).

More-than-Moore technologies cover a wide range of fields. For example, MEMS applications include sensors, actuators and ink jet printers. RF CMOS applications include Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi. CMOS image sensors are found in most digital cameras. High voltage drivers are used to power LED lights. These applications add value to computing and memory devices that are made from the traditional Moore’s Law technology.

Award Criteria

The Award is open to companies from the UK & Ireland who can demonstrate the use of MtM integration in product development.

Excellent applications will include:

  • Evidence of assessment of the market-opportunity
  • Identification of a solution
  • Integration of hardware and software co-design
  • Use of design and physical processes to produce an outstanding and highly innovative new product

Evidence of traction in the market-place is supportive but not an absolute requirement for new products.

Award Benefits

The top 3 candidates will be invited to the TechWorks Awards dinner as guests of the Sponsor and announced during the award process.

The winning company will be presented with the Award with a Sponsor representative and TechWorks Chief Executive.

Online Application Form


The intent of the application process is to acquire sufficient evidence without being burdensome or overly bureaucratic to both applicants and judges. Award candidates are therefore encouraged to provide clear and concise information that is distinctly relevant to the award so that judges are not placed in a position of subjective interpretation.

Where you have worked as part of a team be sure to make it clear in the application how your achievements have been made – judges will not be able to make decisions on inconclusive evidence and will naturally frown upon information interpreted as misleading – therefore, if you worked as part of a team be explicit about what you have done and what was contributed by the team.

All accompanying information should be accurate at the time the application is submitted and should be unlikely to change adversely in a negative capacity in relation to the award before the end of the calendar year.

By submitting an application you confirm that you meet the eligibility criteria set out above.
