2012-08-29 14:54:30

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The next generation of high-speed digital devices might be just a spin away. Every generation of digital electronics is smaller than the one before. Miniaturization is the way of the world, with each successive round of circuitry requiring less space and energy to perform the same tasks. No matter how small or how fast they get, today's digital technology has a functional limit. Magnetically stored digital information becomes...

Image 1 - New Technology Paves The Way To A New Future For Hard Drives
2012-02-08 12:41:50

A new technology developed by a team of international researchers could make current computer hard drive technology obsolete. The researchers said the new technology uses heat to write information to magnetic storage systems, instead of magnetic fields. This technique would allow hard drives to write hundreds of times faster than current drives, recording thousands of gigabytes per second. "Instead of using a magnetic field to record information on a magnetic medium, we harnessed...
