According to recent studies, the basic technologies presently adopted by the semiconductor industry for memory and processor fabrication should attain limits imposed by the laws of physics around the year 2010. Nanoscale sized devices like single-electron transistors appear as a highly promising option to replace conventional devices by that time. In this study, considerations about the realization of a GSI processor, based upon nanoelectronic devices, are presented.
