Researchers Build Computer-on-a-Chip Prototype

Stanford researchers led an international team of engineers that figured out how to pack many functions of a computer onto a single chip, including processing circuits, memory storage, and a power supply. The prototype’s data processing and memory circuits use less than a tenth as much electricity as comparable electronic devices, yet still perform many advanced computing feats. The prototype is built around data storage technology called resistive random-access memory (RRAM), which can pack more data into less space than any other form of memory and retains data when the…
