Intel EMIB silicon helps chips talk to each other

Many of today’s devices including smartphones, computers and servers contain multiple smaller chips sealed inside a larger, usually rectangular package, communicating with each other via a complex multi-layered piece of silicon no bigger than a grain of rice. In the case of Intel powered devices, this communication between chips including …

Silicene transistors created, could be a replacement for silicon


While our silicon chips are generally fast enough at the moment, as we have to pack more transistors into them the manufacturing process has to get smaller and smaller. With most chips made today being fabricated at nanometre lengths between 45nm and 14nm, this process of getting transistors to work correctly at smaller scales is …
