Microchips Recommends a Challenge to Moore’s Law

The integrated circuits can reportedly be manufactured with off the shelf fabrication processes and could lead to novel computer architectures that do more with less circuitry and fewer transistors. Moore’s law states that the number of transistor on an integrated circuit will be doubled every two years in order to keep up with processing demands. This goal has so far been addressed by shrinking the size of individual transistors so that more could be added to the chip. However, that solution is becoming untenable, and the semiconductor industry is looking for new ways to create better computer chips. Conventionally, transistor-based circuits accomplish one task each. Computer processors maneuver by routing each instruction and its operands to the appropriate transistor circuit on the integrated circuit that implements that specific instruction. The transistor circuit can be programmed to implement different instructions by morphing between different operations and functions.
