Episode 0004: Advanced Energy: What happens when Moore’s law is pushed to its limit?

In 1965 Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, made an astounding prediction that transistor density on chips would double roughly every two years.  But few know that at the same time he warned chip fabricators would hit a wall when the geometries involved became as small as atoms or particles themselves.  In this podcast, Bill Baker, CFA, describes how this nimble provider of precision power equipment has bucked a morose trend in the semiconductor industry and gained market share among a field of barely profitable competitors.  He also explains why industrial power equipment markets are being targeted by the management of Advanced Energy.
