Intel, GlobalFoundries and other chipmakers have built massive facilities to manufacture more powerful computer chips. It's all part of a race to prove they can keep pace with Moore's Law.
In 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore foresaw an inexorable rise in chip power that eventually delivered the computer to your pocket. While long in the tooth, Moore's prediction still has plenty of life in it. Here's why.
Lasers with indirect-band-gap technology could ease integration with computer chips and therefore help optical computing, researchers say.
European Union-funded project seeks to rearchitect chips to stop energy "leakage" and make everyday electronics, from cell phones to supercomputers, 10 times more energy efficient.
UC Berkeley engineers have developed a low-power e-skin of touch-sensitive nanowire mesh that may help robots manipulate fragile objects.
A look back at the first hydrogen fuel cell-powered car.
Texas Instruments commemorates the 50th anniversary of the integrated circuit with the opening of Kilby Labs, honoring Nobel-prize-winning inventor of the integrated circuit, Jack Kilby.
Escaped heat is an underused resource for electricity and heating. New technology and a push toward energy efficiency could make recycled energy more attractive.
Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory claim to have designed a solar cell with 40.8 percent efficiency, the world's most efficient yet.
A start-up shows off a prototype of a solar concentrator that packs some serious heat--but that also boosts the efficiency of solar cells significantly.
