Scientists discover new way to prevent spacecraft errors

Scientists from the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Russia) and the Scientific Research Institute of System Analysis of the Russian Academy of Sciences have recently developed components for designing fault-tolerant ...

Programming model for supercomputers of the future

The demand for even faster, more effective, and also energy-saving computer clusters is growing in every sector. The new asynchronous programming model GPI from Fraunhofer ITWM might become a key building block towards realizing ...

New design techniques enable extremely reliable medical devices

For pacemakers and other implantable medical devices there are three key factors: extreme reliability, small size, and long longevity. In the EU project Desyre, researchers tackle these issues with a new approach: building ...

Physicists move one step closer to quantum computer

Rice University physicists have created a tiny "electron superhighway" that could one day be useful for building a quantum computer, a new type of computer that will use quantum particles in place of the digital transistors ...

Scatterometry -- measuring ever-smaller chip production

(PhysOrg.com) -- As computer chips rapidly continue to evolve, new technologies must be developed to closely monitor the fabrication process and guard against faults at a sub-microscopic level.
