The application of conducting plastics are endless for user interfacing of electronics.

Conductive plastic sounds very exciting...I wish they were some numbers mentioned in the article...Kris

thank you Nic...on another note: would EE Times be interested in participating at 2011 emerging technologies conference in Whistler? Kris

Hi Kris I am aware of the CMOSET event from last year. I am keeping my eyes open for when the program appears.

Peter, programs for 2011 and 2012 have been posted (www.cmoset.com). We would be delighted if you can come to Whistler in 2011 or Vancouver in 2012, I will arrange registration waiver ($500 value)...Kris

Thanks EE Times for the interesting topic. Controlling the electrical percolation threshold can also be done biologically by "binding of antigens to the antibodies, disrupt the network continuity causing increased resistance of the network," here is the link: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ac902644z What would be neat (either in biologic or non-biologic versions) is to further control the conductivity dynamically either thru voltage or temperature bias.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
