5nm chips are possible, more powerful, and not too far off in the future

I have a pleasure to recall that, the silicon nanosheet transistor demonstration, as detailed in the Research Alliance paper Stacked Nanosheet Gate-All-Around Transistor to Enable Scaling Beyond FinFET, and published by VLSI, proves that 5nm chips are possible, more powerful, and not too far off in the future. In effect, compared to the leading edge 10nm technology available in the market, a nanosheet-based 5nm technology can deliver 40 percent performance enhancement at fixed power, or 75 percent power savings at matched performance. This improvement enables a significant boost to meeting the future demands of artificial intelligence (AI) systems, virtual reality and mobile devices.

New Transistor for 5nm Technology from IBM Research Alliance

At the core of stakes, we have increase in performance; accelerate cognitive computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and other data-intensive applications delivered in the cloud. We also have the power savings for the batteries in smartphones and other mobile products that could last two to three times longer than today’s devices, before needing to be charged. The use of stacks of silicon nanosheets as the device structure of the transistor, instead of the standard FinFET architecture. From a 7nm test node chip with 20 billion transistors, scientists have paved the way for 30 billion switches on a fingernail-sized chip. In effect,IBM, its Research Alliance partners GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Samsung, and equipment suppliers have developed an industry-first process to build silicon nanosheet transistors that will enable 5 nanometer (nm) chips. The resulting increase in performance will help accelerate cognitive computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and other data-intensive applications deliv…

Vision Positioning System Market in our digital ever-connected era

Steadily, one can observe that, increasing industrial automation, usage of smart robotics in commercial and defense applications, and increasing use of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) for industrial as well as defense purposes has led to the growth of the market vision positioning system globally. According to Research and Markets, the growth of the vision positioning system is driven by several factors, such as increased use of vision positioning systems in industrial automation and indoor navigation, especially in robotics and commercial drones, to handle all kinds of operations. The firm also reveals that, there is an increasing demand in major countries such as the U.S. and China for small drones, automated guided vehicles, and robotics for commercial and civil applications. The vision positioning system market is projected to grow from USD 5.58 billion in 2017 to USD 9.25 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 10.65%. However, stringent government regulations that have led to a ban on drone…

Artificial Intelligence (AI) as the Next Frontier in Sophisticated Technology Solutions for the Intelligent Building

For many analysts, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to redefine how technology automates equipment operations and enhances the occupant experience in commercial buildings. They predict that, it will be a tool in the building automation toolbox and will change how commercial buildings are designed, constructed, operated, and tuned to the environment and tenants. “The business of owning and managing commercial facilities has been transformed by intelligent building technologies,” says Casey Talon, principal research analyst at Navigant Research. “Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the next frontier for the market, enhancing the automated and ongoing systems improvements to generate new revenue streams and optimize the occupant experience.”

Hyperscale Data Center solutions in our ever-connected data-driven era

Their presences are now crucial when it comes to cater to the increasing data center traffic. hyperscale data center solutions help enterprises to reduce their capital and operational expenditures. Hyperscale Data Center solutions can help to transform traditional data centers in a cost-effective and secure way. In effect in our data-driven era where Data center operators face increased needs for scale-out data center architecture, which enables the scaling of critical data center components as and when the demand increases, Hyperscale data center solutions play a key role. Hyperscale data center solutions include server, storage, networking, and software components can be added to an existing data center infrastructure as individual nodes to enable a massively scalable architecture. According to Research and Markets, the hyperscale data center market is expected to grow from USD 25.08 Billion in 2017 to USD 80.65 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.32%.
