Limitless, Cheap Chips Made Out of DNA Could Replace Silicon

Silicon chips are on the way out. According to Duke University engineer Chris Dwyer, a student using the properties of DNA could produce more logic circuits in one day than the entire global silicon chip industry could in one month. » 5/12/10 11:20am 5/12/10 11:20am

Scientists Successfully Embed Silicon Chips Inside Human Cells

Scientists have already created mini-cyborgs out of living cells and semiconductor materials, but now biological cells can also contain tiny silicon chips, which could become sensors that monitor microscopic activities, deliver drugs to target cells or even repair cell structures. » 3/17/10 5:03pm 3/17/10 5:03pm

Moore's Law Revitalized by 12-Nanometer Chip-Fabbing Invention

A year ago we reported on Intel's nifty technique for 22nm » 7/25/08 8:40am 7/25/08 8:40am chip fabrication, which may extend the life of Moore's Law. Now MIT is reporting a new technique for optical lithography which should make 12nm chip manufacture possible, making for smaller, denser future chip tech.By combining laser interference technology…
