Steve Jovertson is making another wild prediction, that we will soon transcending Moore’s Law with Molecular Electronics. And you know something, he does have a point on this one, and a lot of research in the labs is leaning in this direction.
The future of Moore’s Law is not CMOS transistors on silicon. Within 25 years, they will be as obsolete as the vacuum tube. While this will be a massive disruption to the semiconductor industry, a larger set of industries depends on continued exponential cost declines in computational power and storage density. There are several reasons why molecular electronics is the next paradigm for Moore’s Law.
