Journal taketheleap's Journal: HP To Improve Chip Density Using Nanotechnology

The CBC is reporting that HP has developed a new technique using nanotechnology to increase the transistor density on their chips. The key to the new technique lies in the use of silicon nanowires to connect the transistors.

From the article:
"These circuits are prized in communications, automotive and consumer electronics because their components can be programmed and reprogrammed to perform different tasks. The lab hopes a prototype chip using 15-nanometre crossbar wires will be made within a year and hopes to produce the chips by 2010."
