Researchers Develop Low Power Memory

Monday Mar 14th 2011 by Staff

Nanotube technology could help mobile device batteries last 10 times as long as they do now.

InformationWeek: Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a new technology that replaces the titanium or tungsten wiring in Flash memory with carbon nanotubes. The resulting low-power memory could help extend battery life in mobile devices up to ten times longer.

"I think it's reasonable to say something like from a day of average use to maybe a week of average use," said assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering Eric Pop. "But, really, with the caveat that ultimately we have a lot of work cut out for us and other researchers who are working on improving the display technology."
