Can single electronic microprocessors ever work at room temperature?
Additional Document Info
The tunneling rate of single electronic tunneling (SET) transistor at nonzero temperature has been analyzed. A stability condition, which allows one bit flip error/year, is used. The aspects of dissipation and performance are studied, for a single SET and for a microprocessor built of SETs, versus the size.
