It took about 5 years after the transistor was invented before the method of purifing silicon so that it could scale in frequency. As I understand it Graphene is where the transistor was at its time of invention. I say that our combined technology will solve the production problem and when that happens, it will scale our technology to new territories. As I see it now, silicon has about five years or so before it can reach its max frequency. We need Graphene or Silicene or Stanene to come through for us. When it does, we'll have a brave new world. I'm betting on Graphene and have invested in a graphite mine.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
