Research Bits: April 5


Creating qubits in bulk Researchers from Intel and QuTech, an institute of the Delft University of Technology and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), built a qubit using standard semiconductor manufacturing facilities. The qubit is based on the spin of single electrons that are captured in a silicon nanoscale device, which resembles conventional transistors. ... » read more

Technical Paper Round-Up: April 5


Neuromorphic chips, transistor defect detection, quantum, pellicles, BEV mobile charging, copper wire bonding, LrWPAN, batteries and superconductivity top the past week's technical papers. They also point to a rising level of government investment, and collaborations between schools that historically haven't worked closely together, including one that involves schools on different continents. ... » read more

Quantum logic with spin qubits crossing the surface code threshold


New research paper from QuTech, Delft University of Technology. Abstract "High-fidelity control of quantum bits is paramount for the reliable execution of quantum algorithms and for achieving fault tolerance—the ability to correct errors faster than they occur. The central requirement for fault tolerance is expressed in terms of an error threshold. Whereas the actual threshold depends o... » read more

Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Deals Utilidata and Nvidia are teaming up on a software-defined smart grid chip that can be embedded in smart meters to with the aim of improving grid resiliency and integrating distributed energy resources (DERs) such as solar, storage, and electric vehicles. The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will test the software-defined smart grid chip as a way t... » read more

Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Siemens Digital Industries Software acquired Fractal Technologies, a provider of tools for IP validation and comparison checks of standard cell libraries, IO, and hard IP that reports mismatches or modeling errors, as well as comparing new IP releases close to tape-out. Siemens plans to add Fractal’s technology to the Xcelerator portfolio, joining the Solido software product family, which inc... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: June 2


Neuromorphic memristor Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst used protein nanowires to create neuromorphic memristors capable of running at extremely low voltage. A challenge to neuromorphic computing is mimicking the low voltage at which the brain operates: it sends signals between neurons at around 80 millivolts. Jun Yao, an electrical and computer engineering researcher at ... » read more

Quantum Madness


The race is on to commercialize quantum computing for everything from autonomous vehicles to supercomputers for hire. IBM has been working on a 50-qubit computer. Intel and QuTech, its Dutch research partner, showed off a 17-qubit test chip last month. And Alphabet, Google's parent company, is developing a 20-qubit computer. These numbers sound paltry compared to the billions of transistors ... » read more
