Hundratals filmer på en tumnagel? Nya revolutionerande datorchip skakar om i datorvärlden

Det enda vi med säkerhet vet är att dagens datorer och mobiler kommer att se ut som museiföremål om tio år.

John Markoff skriver i New York Times om en ny datorchiprevolution som kommer att göra det möjligt att lagra ofantligt mycket mer data än vi kan göra idag. Computer Chips Seem Poised to Shrink Again – NYTimes.com

Rice researchers are reporting in Nano Letters, a journal of the American Chemical Society, that they have succeeded in building reliable small digital switches ‘ an essential part of computer memory ‘ that could shrink to a significantly smaller scale than is possible using conventional methods.

More important, the advance is based on silicon oxide, one of the basic building blocks of today’s chip industry, thus easing a move toward commercialization. The scientists said that PrivaTran, a Texas startup company, has made experimental chips using the technique that can store and retrieve information.
