One Group’s Answer to Transistors Behaving Badly

May 11, 2010 |

Most of the efforts to address the problem of shrinking transistor geometries have focused on making the devices behave more precisely. But what if instead of trying to make the transistors better, we purposefully try to make them worse. Although it sounds counter-intuitive, developing processors that are naturally error-prone is exactly what one team of researchers has set out to do.
