Still Smaller Computer Chips

Posted by Prahallad Panda on 2:02 PM Comments

Still smaller computer chips are now possible.

Tech barrier goes, PC chips to shrink further

Scientists at Rice University and Hewlett-Packard say that they can overcome a fundamental barrier to the continued rapid miniaturization of computer memory that has been the basis for the consumer electronics revolution.
More important, the advance is based on silicon oxide, one of the basic building blocks of today's chip industry, thus easing a move toward commercialization. The scientists said that PrivaTran, a Texas startup company, has made experimental chips using the technique that can store and retrieve information.
Separately, HP researchers are set to announce later on Tuesday that it will enter into a commercial partnership with a major semiconductor company to produce a related technology that also has the potential of pushing computer data storage to astronomical densities in the next decade.
