A team of researchers from Taiwan and the University of California, Berkeley, has harnessed nanodots to create a new electronic memory technology that can write and erase data 10-100 times faster than today's mainstream charge-storage memory products. The new system uses a layer of non-conducting material embedded with discrete (non-overlapping) silicon nanodots, each approximately 3 nanometers across. Each nanodot functions as a single memory bit. To control the memory operation, this layer...

A transistor, made of a solid piece of semiconductor material, is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals. It has at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. The transistor amplifies the signal since the controlled power can be much more than the controlling power. The transistor is a fundamental building block of...

Computer hardware describes the physical components that make up a personal computer. Operating systems and many software applications can be installed on hardware in order to perform the operator's desired functions. Most personal computers consist of a chassis in a tower shape, a desktop, all of which contain hardware components. The main component inside the case of the computer is the motherboard. It is a large rectangular board with incorporated circuits that connect things to the...
