WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Engineers at Purdue University have developed a method to make smaller, faster computer chips by stacking electronic devices -- such as transistors 50 times smaller than a human blood cell -- in a virtually unlimited number of layers, as opposed to conventional single-layer designs. The vertically connected layers may increase the speed and the number of transistors in a computer chip.
The above story is based on materials provided by Purdue University. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
