  2. “Atomristors” Hold Promise For Memory Storage, RF Switching
    1/17/2018

    Engineers worldwide have been developing alternative ways to provide greater memory storage capacity on even smaller computer chips. Previous research into two-dimensional atomic sheets for memory storage has failed to uncover their potential — until now.

  3. IBM Research Alliance Builds New Transistor For 5nm Technology
    6/5/2017

    IBM, its Research Alliance partners GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Samsung, and equipment suppliers have developed an industry-first process to build silicon nanosheet transistors that will enable 5 nanometer (nm) chips.

  4. Micro Harmonics MMW Isolators For Apps Requiring Superior Isolation, Low Insertion Loss
    1/8/2018

    Micro Harmonics announces the availability of high performance MMW isolator products for applications requiring superior isolation and low insertion loss. The initial standard product offerings from Micro Harmonics are available in WR-12 (60-90 GHz) and WR-10 (75-110 GHz). Both models work well over frequencies outside of the standard waveguide bands. The WR-12 isolators have remarkably low insertion loss (< 1 dB) in the popular WR-12 sub-bands 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz. Power handling exceeds the current state-of-the-art due to the implementation of diamond substrates to channel heat to the waveguide block.
