In the semiconductor industry, size matters — and people are worried that it won’t be able make transistors any smaller. But a team of IBM scientists has now published research showing how carbon nanotubes could help.
Do you sometimes wonder what the hell people a talking about when the discuss transistors, processors, binary or Moore’s Law? Or have friends that need a simple introduction to the topics? Then this is the video for you.
One day, Moore’s Law will no longer hold true. This rule says computer power doubles every 18 months. This week’s Under The Hood features a video of theoretical physicist Michio Kaku explaining that it will fall apart in about a decade and saying just what might happen.
