NRAM memory from nanotubes comes with a number of advantages

Japanese company Fujitsu will begin production of non-volatile NRAM memories based on carbon nanotubes next year, the specialized source reported. With research in the field of NRAM, or Nano-RAM, the American company Nantero has long been involved. But two years ago, licenses for commercial activity with NRAMs were acquired by Japanese manufacturers Fujitsu Semiconductor and Mie Fujitsu Semiconductor. The principle of NRAM memories is based on the positioning of carbon nanotubes. The key layer in the cell is an array of hundreds of nanotubes intertwined randomly. One value of the control voltage deforms the nanotubes, resulting in a conducting Full Story

Cloud giants develop their own chips

Leading cloud companies are resorting to proprietary chip development that will allow them to build their own servers, thus reducing their dependence on Intel, Taiwanese Digitimes said on Monday, citing industry sources. Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon and Alibaba need special chips to work with artificial intelligence applications. Intel has long dominated the processor market, and this is not the case for big internet players who continue to expand the capabilities of their applications and services. At the Google I / O 2018 Developer Conference earlier this year, the internet company introduced third-generation Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) tensor processors designed for Full Story
