Wireless data transfer saw development as early as the late 19th century. Since that time it has evolved and become prevalent in society. Moore's Law of integrated circuit transistor count is an exponential projection against time, regarding the density increase of transistors on a wafer of semi-conductor material. This paves the way for the research and conclusions proposed in this project: to analyse past and present wireless communication technologies and draw a valid phrase or figure of merit to to describe relevant trends in in data transfer rate progression in wireless technologies over time. This project will primarily take into account Moore's Law, transistor theory and various forms of wireless implementations over time and suggest a relevant relationship; thus providing access to such noticeable trends in dtat transfer progression over time. It will also investigate the development of the transistor and its relation to Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit technology progression in wireless communications.
