Silicon dioxide nanometal offers alternative ReRAM Research 4/3/2012 13 comments Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, led by Professor I-Wei Chen, have developed a resistive-switching memory device based on silicon dioxide. Professor Chen is due to present an update on the technology at a one-day symposium on emerging non-volatile memory technologies due to be held Friday, April 6 in Santa Clara, California.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
