Nanowire Nanocomputer

April 2nd, 2014 by

Researchers from the MITRE Corporation and Harvard University are working to develop an ultra-small electronic computer system that pushes beyond the end of Moore’s Law.  They designed and assembled a functioning control computer (nanocontroller) called the Nanoelectronic Finite-State Machine or nanoFSM, that is the densest nanoelectronic system ever built.  The nanoFSM measures 0.3×0.03 millimeters and is made up of hundreds of nanowire transistors.  The nanowire transistors use very little power and, when assembled and organized into circuits, route small electronic signals around the computer.  Read more at:
