The University of Wisconsin is using digital imaging technology in a novel attempt to simplify the fabrication of custom chips. Rather than creating a set of photomasks to define micron-scale features, a team of semiconductor engineers and molecular biologists hit on the idea of using a Texas Instruments Inc. micromirror array chip — the Digital Light Processor — to create a "virtual mask" for performing photolithography. The technique was devised as an economical way to create custo
Researchers look to develop throwaway chips

A multidisciplinary group at Cornell University is chasing a disposable chip technology that would layer plastic circuitry on top of thin, flexible silicon sheets to create throwaway information displays. This cheap technology could be built into consumer items such as milk cartons that scroll through pictures of missing children, or one-sheet newspapers with a button to toggle through the pages.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
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.
