GUILFORD, Conn., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Ion Torrent today announced that the deadline for the Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM(TM)) Sequencer Grant Program in Europe has been extended to Nov. 22 to give more scientists the opportunity to win a DNA sequencer for their own labs. To apply, researchers need only write a few hundred words describing their proposed experiment. The two scientists whose proposals best take advantage of the Ion PGM sequencer's speed, throughput and low cost will...

Scientists at Rice University and North Carolina State University have found a method of attaching molecules to semiconducting silicon that may help manufacturers reach beyond the current limits of Moore's Law as they make microprocessors both smaller and more powerful.Their findings are published this month by the Journal of the American Chemical Society.Moore's Law, suggested by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965, said the number of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit...

By MIKE HIMOWITZ If there's a recent grad in your house, or you're one of the many buyers who think they can get a better deal at midyear than during the holidays, chances are good that you're looking for a computer. And your chances of finding a good one for a reasonable price are good indeed. For that we can thank Moore's Law, which should more accurately be called Moore's Bubble. Gordon Moore, the co-founder of Intel, predicted decades ago that the number of transistors that...

By Mike Himowitz, The Baltimore Sun Jun. 19--If there's a recent grad in your house, or you're one of the many buyers who think they can get a better deal at midyear than during the holidays, chances are good that you're looking for a computer. And your chances of finding a good one for a reasonable price are good indeed. In fact, you'd have to work pretty hard to find a bad one. For that we can thank Moore's Law -- which should more accurately be called Moore's Bubble. Gordon Moore, the...

PCs will continue to get faster, in accordance with Moore's Law, but it won't be like the old days when vendors brought out successive generations of microprocessor chips that ran at faster and faster speeds, to the delight of the users. "They've hit the wall because of heat," Tom Halfhill, senior analyst for the Microprocessor Report newsletter in San Jose, Calif., told LiveScience. Currently, chip speeds have topped out at a little under 4 gigahertz (4 billion cycles per...

TOKYO -- The journey to ever smaller, faster and cheaper chips is slowing down and may put a big dent in sales and profits of the semiconductor sector and even the economy, industry players and analysts said this week. Until recently, chip makers doubled the capacity of their products at the same size and cost every 18 to 24 months, helped by miniaturization and scale advantages, a phenomenon known as Moore's Law, named after the Intel co-founder Gordon Moore who predicted this trend as early...
