DNA testing chip delivers results in one hour

Panasonic, together with the Belgium-based research institution IMEC, has developed a DNA testing chip that automates all stages of obtaining genetic information, including preprocessing. This development is expected to enable personalized, tailor-made therapy to become widespread. SNPs are variations in a single DNA base among individuals. Detecting SNPs makes it possible to check whether genetically …

Femtosecond Electronics With Plasmonic Hot Electron Nano-emitters

A team led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) physicists Alexander Holleitner and Reinhard Kienberger has found success for the first time in generating ultrashort electric pulses on a chip. They made this possible by using asymmetric metal antennas only a few nanometers in dimension, then running the signals a few millimeters above the …

TWO BITS PER TRANSISTOR: HIGH-DENSITY ROM IN INTEL’S 8087 FLOATING POINT CHIP

The 8087 chip provided fast floating point arithmetic for the original IBM PC and became part of the x86 architecture used today. One unusual feature of the 8087 is it contained a multi-level ROM (Read-Only Memory) that stored two bits per transistor, twice as dense as a normal ROM. Instead of storing binary data, each …
