Dennard’s scaling rules observe that voltage and current should be proportional to the linear dimensions of a transistor, implying that power consumption (the product of voltage and current) will be proportional to the area of a transistor. This property implies that shrunk MOSFETs will consume less power, and forms the basis of Moore's Law.
