As an excellent conductor of heat and electricity, graphene is a promising electronics substrate, but it can’t be switched on and off like silicon can. With no solution in sight, a team of UC Riverside researchers has taken a completely new approach.
As transistors reach the limits of miniaturization, it is only a matter of time until Moore’s Law runs out of steam. The latest expert to weigh-in says Moore’s Law will expire in 2020 at the 7nm node.
Big Blue’s research arm makes carbon more transistor-friendly.
Sources suggest that December could be the month that NVIDIA’s Project Denver finds its way to silicon.
As the limitations of silicon at the nanoscale become apparent, new materials are emerging to address the performance gap.
Oxford University scientists generate 10 billion bits of quantum entanglement in silicon for the first time.
A new research effort is underway at UCSB’s Terabit Optical Ethernet Center (TOEC). A research team with notable industry partners is working to bring the goal of energy-efficient 1 Terabit Ethernet to life in the next five years.
Chips that let errors happen, then correct them, prove more efficient.
