Moore’s Law is coming to an end, according to a recent research paper authored by Intel researchers. It theorizes that chipmakers will hit a wall at the 5-nanometer transistor gate length for chips made on a 16-nanometer technology process.
When the gate length gets below 5 nanometers, tunneling will begin to occur. Electrons will simply pass through the channel on their own, because the source and the drain will… read more
