Decades of progress creating conventional computer chips will stall in the coming years, forcing some far-out ideas on semiconductor makers. Carbon nanotubes or quantum computing, anyone?
In an in-depth interview, Henry Samueli predicts a lot more bits in our future with multigigabit Wi-Fi, LTE, and home broadband. Moore's Law is a tougher challenge, but Broadcom plans high-end CPUs, too.
Helping the hunt for something to replace silicon transistors, Big Blue researchers have found a way to precisely place carbon nanotubes -- or rather, to encourage them to place themselves.
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.
This Intel vice president lives 10 years in the chip technology future, charting a course for the computing industry and transforming research ideas into high-volume manufacturing.
A new type of memory called Racetrack is finally off the drawing boards at IBM. Its development should pave the way for mobile and desktop devices that are faster, store more data, and chew up less power.
Don Eigler moved a single atom two decades ago. Since then, he and IBM have taken new steps in pursuing a dream of compact, power-efficient computing.
Researchers have discovered a new battery form charged by the application of a very strong magnetic field, the Magnetic Tunnel Junction.
Intel CTO Justin Rattner paints a bullish future with advances in processing, communication, robots, materials science, and human-computer interfaces.
Freescale Semiconductor launches a business to develop MRAM memory technology.
