New Nanotech Research Uses 100 Times Less Power

Researchers from the University of Illinois’ Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, have developed a new digital memory module that uses much less power and is faster than current memory solutions. This breakthrough could lead to future smartphone and laptop devices to have a much longer battery life, as well as possibly improving telecommunications.

The latest research on memory includes phase-change materials(PCM) as an alternative to the kind of memory that stores bits as a charge. Using PCM technology, each bit is stored in the resistance of the material itself and can and can be reversibly switched with short voltage pulses and localized Joule heating. Some advantages of this technology include…
