Junctionless transistors with 10nm gates

    The new transistor (described in the March issue of Nature Nanotechnology) will switch faster, at lower voltage with less heat. Current manufacturing processes can easily be adapted to fabricate the new circuit.

    The prototype is 1 micron long but the researchers believe it can be scaled down to 10nm.

    And we get to see this implemented in, what, maybe 10 years?

    They were a little vague on the timetable - as in, didn't talk about it - at all.

    At least it won't be another 85 years? Right? Somewhere between a die shrink and warp drive. :twitch: :pimp:

    hmm with current pace, and we will have Northern island that use 28nm, I'm predicting this thing will be implemented in less than 5 years, and the article stated that this technology was compatible with current manufacturing, so right now they can just design the chip to be compatible with this technology and maximize its potential by just using today foundry (GF, TSMC)

    please dont be a nother waste of 5 mins reading another new tech and never seeing it come close to being used in the real world -.-
