[Ars] IBM prepares for end of process shrinks with carbon nanotube transistors - Page 3

post #21 of 24
what they dont say is that back in the day of corbon nanotuube craze,the theory was they could basicly intelace atom in the nanotube(trap)ya very hard core stuff but if this was to happen we would end up with nanotube processor!or at worst very small path with other property!that was what 10 15 years ago!the school and corp involved in this havent stopped that is for sure ,because back then the limit (with thot for transistor was 100 nm!we ll be at 14 nm soon!ibm has been manipulating atom for close to 10 or more years !

There's a reason why IBM is probably one of, if not THE most important and prestigious company in computing history thumb.gif

The kick in the head? Intel has been using carbon nanotubes to replace silicon in processors since at least 2007, the ireland campus is doing most of the research. Of course the original news is from last Feb. It is a big deal but will not be able to do anything until after we push chips into the sub 10nm. The current density of the carbon chips is the same as current processors.

The difference, though, is that carbon nanotubes can operate at a much higher capacity (frequency) than current silicon transistors. That, alone, will be a huge step forward technologically.
