Research Bits: April 23


Probabilistic computer prototype Researchers at Tohoku University and the University of California Santa Barbara created a prototype of a heterogeneous probabilistic computer that combines a CMOS circuit with a limited number of stochastic nanomagnets. It aims to improve the execution of probabilistic algorithms used to solve problems where uncertainty is inherent or where an exact solution... » read more

Chip Industry Week In Review


By Adam Kovac, Karen Heyman, and Liz Allan.  China introduced strict procurement guidelines aimed at blocking the use of AMD and Intel processors in government computers. Meanwhile, China urged the Netherlands to ease restrictions on deep ultraviolet (DUV) litho equipment, according to Nikkei Asia. DUV is an older technology, based on 193nm ArF lasers, but in conjunction with multi-p... » read more
