Intel shakes chip world with ‘skyscraper’ transistors

Chip giant Intel on Wednesday claimed a “major technical breakthrough”, introducing high volume production of the world’s first 3D transistor design. The technology could deliver significant performance gains to mobile devices while avoiding an increase in power consumption. Expect to see the developments implemented in Intel’s Atom chipsets.

Adventures in nanotechnology

Boffins at the Nokia Research Centre this week showed off futuristic gadget concepts they’ve been working on in the three years since initial launch of the Morph concept. Morph suggests that future mobile devices might be stretchable and flexible, allowing the user to transform the gadget into radically different shapes. Nanotechnology would enable the ultimate functionality delivering flexible materials, transparent electronics and self-cleaning surfaces.


Do you agree public funding should be used to support mobile operators to more broadly deploy Open RAN?
