China may have found a way to become a leading 5G chip maker instead of a straggler

Lithography machines play an important role in the manufacture of chips. They are used to etch patterns on wafers that show where transistors are placed on chips. One of the biggest breakthroughs was EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography). This creates extremely thin markings, which are very important when working with chips like the upcoming 5nm Apple A14 Bionic, which contains 15 …

Engineers put tens of thousands of artificial brain synapses for portable AI devices on a single chip

WITH Engineers have developed a “brain-on-a-chip” that is smaller than a piece of confetti and consists of tens of thousands of artificial brain synapses known as memristors – silicon-based components that mimic the information-transmitting synapses in the human brain. The researchers borrowed the principles of metallurgy to make each memristor from silver and copper alloys together with silicon. When the …
