An integrated co-processor chip based on a memristor crossbar array and complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) control circuitry can be used to implement neuromorphic and machine learning algorithms.
With the help of algorithms for target tracking and removal of random body-movement noise, a radio-frequency sensor can track multiple people and monitor their individual vital signs in a real-world setting.
A hybrid analogue–digital computing system based on memristive devices is capable of solving classic control problems with potentially a lower energy consumption and higher speed than fully digital systems.
A nanolithography technique that uses a heated scanning probe tip can precisely pattern metal electrodes on two-dimensional semiconductors, creating field-effect transistors with exceptional performance.
Through some unconventional approaches to improving transistor density and performance, the latest logic technology from Intel delivers 100 million transistors per square millimetre — and in the process, reaffirms Moore’s law.
A theoretical analysis of the dynamics of magnetic skyrmions and antiskyrmions shows that large current-induced spin–orbit torques can lead to nonlinear trochoidal motion, which results in a sharp drop in translational velocity.
A multifunctional stretchable electronic system, which can be used to monitor vital signs and build human–machine interfaces, can be created through the vertical stacking of highly integrated layers of soft electronics.
