Chip architecture uses nanowires

September 17, 2004 | Source: Technology Research News

Hewlett-Packard Laboratories researchers are simulating chips that would use nanowire crossbar arrays.

These simulations show that nanowire crossbar arrays can contain as many as 100 times more devices in a given area than today’s chip technologies, even with the redundancy required by high defect rates in nanowire crossbar arrays.
