It's the kind of electronic junk that piles up in basements and garages—an old computer motherboard with wires sticking out.
(PhysOrg.com) -- The past decade has seen the emergence of the field of spintronics, aimed at increasing the efficiency of information processing and computer memories. The idea behind spintronics is to harness the magnetic ...
Just when Intel Corp. finally is making real progress in the desperate push to get its chips into smartphones and tablets, the tech titan finds itself in a Catch-22.
Record-setting p-type transistor demonstrated: New design boasts the highest 'carry mobility' yet measured
Almost all computer chips use two types of transistors: one called p-type, for positive, and one called n-type, for negative. Improving the performance of the chip as a whole requires parallel improvements in both types.
Researchers at MIT and the Santa Fe Institute have found that some widely used formulas for predicting how rapidly technology will advance—notably, Moore's Law and Wright's Law—offer superior approximations of the pace ...
An energy-recycling computer circuit born at the University of Michigan will enable a new generation of power efficient laptop PCs and servers.
Intel Corp. unveiled its fourth generation processors in Taipei on Tuesday in a bid to give personal computers a new lease of life amid stiff competition from smartphones and tablets.
By turning a common problem in chip manufacture into an advantage, MIT researchers produce structures only 30 atoms wide.
A new study published today in the journal Nature Materialss has found a way to suppress the thermal conductivity in sodium cobaltate so that it can be used to harvest waste energy.
