Brain-Inspired Computing Device That Programs/RePrograms HW On Demand With Electrical Pulses


Multiple academic and government institutions jointly developed a new computer device that can "program and program computer hardware on demand through electrical pulses," according to this Argonne National Lab news release. The device's key materials are neodymium, nickel and oxygen and is referred to as a perovskite nickelate. This new research paper titled "Reconfigurable perovskite nicke... » read more

Week In Review: Manufacturing, Test


Node scaling wars are revving up, although much of the action is happening where most people can't see it — inside of research labs. This is difficult stuff, which makes delivery dates difficult to pinpoint, and no one wants to give away their competitive position or commit to a timeline they can't keep. Billions of dollars of leading-edge research — funded by pure-play foundry TSMC, IDM... » read more

System Bits: Oct. 25


Scalable quantum computers In what they say is a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer, researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits. The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses 3D based on spring-lo... » read more

System Bits: May 10


Topological insulators In a finding that could open up a new pathway to advanced electronic devices and even robust quantum computer architecture, researchers from MIT; Oak Ridge, and Argonne National Laboratories; the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Bochum, Germany; the Institute for Theoretical Solid State Physics in Dresden; the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris; and the Institute of N... » read more

System Bits: Aug. 11


Fundamental physics discovery The study of correlated electrons — a branch of fundamental physics research — focuses on interactions between the electrons in metals, which now are understood a bit better, according to Caltech researchers. Understanding these interactions and the unique properties they produce could lead to the development of novel materials and technologies, but they mu... » read more
