In the semiconductor industry, size matters — and people are worried that it won’t be able make transistors any smaller. But a team of IBM scientists has now published research showing how carbon nanotubes could help. »
Imagine electrical circuits that you could print off and use for a few hours before they melted away and stop functioning or changed their function. A spy’s best friend, they could become reality thanks to a new kind of electric circuitry printed on graphene. »
Electrons are quick, but they’re not quick enough — in fact they’re holding back the speed of modern computing. Now, a team has developed the world’s first ever light-based memory chip that can store data permanently, and it could help usher in a new era of computing »
Most phones have some kind of quick charge system these days and on Android many of them are powered by Qualcomm’s Quick Charge. But the technology has been given an overhaul, and the next-gen version will take a dead phone to 80 percent of charge in just 35 minutes. That is lightning fast. »
Think your solid state drive is blazing fast? Then prepare to be amazed by the new storage system being proposed by Intel and Micron, which promises speeds that are one thousand times faster than current NAND Flash memory. »
It might look like some kind of grade school abstract painting, but you’re actually looking at a microscopic transistor which is made up of a single molecule and a smattering of of atoms. »
IBM has announced that it’s designed a new kind of ultra-dense chip, which squeezes in four times as much computing power as the best silicon currently available. »
Samsung has announced a new series of prototype OLED displays in Hong Kong that, with their mirrored and transparent surfaces, are like something from a sci-fi film. »
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Intel has announced that its new Thunderbolt standard, the third iteration of the inter-connector, will use the USB Type-C connector—as well as boasting data transfer rates that allow it to drive two 4K screen simultaneously.
LG consistently produces impressive screens, and this one is no exception. The 55-inch OLED panel is just 0.97 millimeters thick, and can be removed from its magnetic wall mounting like a poster. »
While chips have gotten increasingly smaller, even low-power silicon usually uses off-chip power supplies because shrinking batteries down is difficult. This new super-small battery could finally put power supplies on the chip—and tiny computational systems anywhere you can imagine. »
If you need masses of storage but like your laptop’s performance super-fast, then this new SSD may scratch your itch. With 6 terabytes of storage, this is the world’s largest capacity 2.5-inch SSD (for now). »
One of the most annoying things about many smartwatches is terrible battery life, requiring a charge just about every night. But the Apple Watch’s hidden port could be the solution.
This little chap might not look much, but within lurks a super-fast, super-efficient SSD. Samsung's latest PCIe flash drive can move data at up to 2.15GB per second—and only draws 2 milliwatts of power while in standby. »
Here at Intel's big CES keynote, CEO Brian Krzanich is announcing Intel's new Curie Module, a tiny little device that will let you turn all the things you already own and wear into smart devices. It's a little button-sized hardware module, powered by Intel's teeny tiny Quark technology, and it adds a brain to anything… »
