According to Moore’s Law; due to the technoTransistors get 2x smaller about every 2 years. This means, can fit twice as many transistors per chip.


Carbon nanotube breakthrough

Researchers demonstrate carbon nanotube transistors that outperform silicon equivalents for first time; achieved 1.9x higher current; the milestone will have repercussions for the nanotechnology industry.
