IBM Makes Atomic Chip Breakthrough
Would use tiny ionic currents, processing data like the human brain
Scientists at IBM claimed today that it has cracked a materials conundrum that may well create a new class of memory and logic chips.
The scientists discovered a way to operate chips using small ionic currents. That’s streams of charged atoms mimicking the way the human brain works.
Moore’s Law is close to bust at the CMOS level, IBM thinks and low power and high performance semiconductors using different techniques will soon be needed.
