Researchers Shrink Transistor Gate to One Nanometer

October 13, 2016

A team of US scientists may have just breathed new life into a faltering Moore’s law and advanced the limits of microelectronic miniaturization with the fabrication of a transistor with a 1nm gate. The breakthrough portends a path beyond silicon-based transistors, which have been widely predicted to hit a wall at 5-nanometers. Read more…

Designer of Microprocessor-Memory Chip Aims to Topple Memory and Power Walls

January 17, 2012

Whether you're talking about high performance computers, enterprise servers, or mobile devices, the two biggest impediments to application performance in computing today are the memory wall and the power wall. Venray Technology is aiming to knock down those walls with a unique approach that puts CPU cores and DRAM on the same die. The company has been in semi-stealth mode since it inception seven years ago, but is now trying to get the word out about its technology as it searches for a commercial buyer. Read more…
