computer memoryTSMC 7 nanometer fab ramping in 2018, 5 nm in 2019, 3 nm Fab in 2021-2022

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) will build the world’s first 3-nm fab in the Tainan Science Park in southern Taiwan, where the company does the bulk of its manufacturing. About a year ago, TSMC said it planned to build its …

blockchainFilecoin raises $257 million and will unlock unused storage in data centers

Blockchain data storage network Filecoin has officially completed its initial coin offering (ICO), raising more than $257 million over a month of activity. The internet is in the middle of a revolution: centralized proprietary services are being replaced with decentralized …

computer memoryProgress to high density, low power Skyrmion based memory

Researchers have created a thin film material that allows them to control the size and density of magnetic skyrmions. This is progress towards a skyrmion-based memory device. The potential memory that is smaller by an order of magnitude and uses …

computer memoryASML enabling Moore’s law scaling and cost reduction out to 1 to 2 nanometers in mid-2020s

Today ASML is selling billions in Extreme Ultraviolet lithography machines. These machines will help deliver chips at the 5 nanometer to 2 nanometer nodes. ASML (Veldhoven, the Netherlands) sold eight more EUV (next-generation extreme ultraviolet lithography) systems in the second …

computer memoryFene engineering stored a digital movie in the genomes of living bacteria

Researchers use expensive machinery to develop ways to harness DNA as a synthetic raw material to store large amounts of digital information outside of living cells. In 2016, a team at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard …

computer memoryElectron magnetic moments may achieve 100 times more computer memory storage

Many people who use computers and other digital devices are aware that all the words and images displayed on their monitors boil down to a sequence of ones and zeros. But few likely appreciate what is behind those ones and …

3d3D NAND will squeeze out Planar NAND

Intel’s new 3D NAND SSDs were specifically designed for cloud data center scenarios, but that those conditions apply to more than cloud service providers. The DC P4500 line is optimized for reads and is aimed at helping data centers get …

computer memoryChemical energy storage with water heating solar panels enables a conversion of more than 80 percent of the incoming sunlight

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have demonstrated efficient solar energy storage in a chemical liquid. The stored energy can be transported and then released as heat whenever needed. The research is now presented on the cover of …

computer memoryCRISPR/Cas9 Reveals Cancer’s Synthetic Lethal Vulnerabilities

The CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing system has been used to identify more than 120 synthetic-lethal gene interactions in cancer cells. These interactions could guide drug developers to new combination therapies that could selectively kill cancer cells and spare healthy cells. Synthetic-lethal gene …

brainSome aging reversal in appearance, liver, muscle and other functions with cell penetrating peptides in very old mice

Researchers have rejuvenated old mice to restore their stamina, coat of fur and even some organ function. The team at Erasmus University Medical Center, in the Netherlands, are planning human trials for what they hope is a treatment for old …
