Molecular Electronic Computing Architectures

Technology development and industrial competition have been driving the semiconductor industry to produce smaller, faster, and more powerful logic devices. That the number of transistors per integrated circuit will double every 18-24 months due to advancements in technology is commonly referred to as

Moore’s Law

, after Intel founder Gordon Moore, who made the prediction in a 1965 paper with the prophetic title “Cramming More Components onto Integrated Circuits.”
