Can Moore’s Law Survive the 21st Century? Carbon Nanotube Processors and Other Technology Hold the Key

Moore’s Law, which states that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles every two years has pretty much held up since the early 1970s. At that time, there were up to 5,000 transistors in advanced integrated circuits. Today, that figure is roughly 50 billion. At some point, designers and engineers wondered, “Wouldn’t physical space limits eventually make Moore’s Law obsolete?”
