Recently, physicists discovered superconductivity in graphene. (Image Credit: CoolVid-Shows/Pixabay)   In 2018, physicists made a unique discovery: stacking two carbon sheets with a small, 1.1-degree twist between them causes the material to behave like a superconductor. Researchers set out to determine why this was happening with a form of robust superconductivity. Theorists hoped the discovery would redefine how they understood superconductivity and allow the development of materials wit ...
Applied Materials’ new solution involves combining seven process technologies in one system under a high vacuum. This improves chip performance and power consumption. (Image Credit: Applied Material)   Recently, Applied Materials announced it achieved a chip wiring breakthrough, allowing logic chips to be scaled down to 3nm and beyond. As a result, the width between circuits is three billionths of a meter. Existing chip factories produce 7nm and 5nm chips, which means that these 3nm ...
Wiliot’s sticker-mounted transmitter powers devices by collecting radio waves instead of relying on a battery. (Image Credit: Wiliot)   The Internet of Things is constantly expanding with more connected devices. However, more connected longevity challenges arise as many of them are added to the network. Some challenges involve improving device components’ reliance on power. Now, several companies are finding ways to reduce power consumption in devices, allowing them to add inte ...
USB 3.0 and WiFi and Interference, Oh My! We have seen comments and questions in the Ultra96 Hardware Design Forum here on Element14 about how WiFi performance on the Ultra96-V2 is affected if the adjacent USB 3.0 interface is also used simultaneously.  This is not a new phenomenon, and certainly not exclusive to the Ultra96-V2.  Lots of products, especially WiFi network routers, have experienced this issue to varying degrees.  The issue is that the USB 3.0 interface radiates emis ...
Intel and QuTech utilized the Horse Ridge chip to demonstrate two-qubit quantum computing capabilities. The researchers say it could pave the way toward silicon-based quantum computing. (Image Credit: Marieke de Lorijn)   Engineers from QuTech in the Netherlands and Intel designed and tested a cryogenic chip that controls qubits operating at very low temperatures. Their design presents new opportunities to solve the "wiring bottleneck," significantly progressing toward a scalable quantum c ...
