Large CMOS Chip Designed To Save Lives

United Kingdom’s University of Lincoln has created a slim 12.8cm squared CMOS chip that is 200 times bigger than that of a laptop of PC chip. The CMOS chip is called Dynamite and 12.8cm is just about the biggest you can make a CMOS imaging chip on a standard 20cm wafer. CMOS stands for Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor.
