I'm interested in superconductivity. It promises many things. But it's taking long now to fulfil our dreams. There are many bricks constructing the wall. Perhaps this will become a gigantic change to our technology. The article describes the possibility of having superconducting transistors. But 30 Kelvin seems to me still to low temperature and the search is for ambient temperature. The quest still goes ahead.

Superconductivity seems to be a technology that is perpetually "almost there," but these Brookhaven researchers seem to be committed to solving the mystery, and they are actually making progress. Keep you fingers crossed!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
