With Spintronics, Intel Sees Efficiency, Density Scaling Far Beyond CMOS

[ All news ] [ Previous ] [ Next ]


Intel proposed in “Nature” a scalable spintronic logic device that operates via spin–orbit transduction combined with magnetoelectric switching.

The device uses advanced quantum materials, especially correlated oxides and topological states of matter, for collective switching and detection… In comparison with CMOS technology their device has superior switching energy (by a factor of 10 to 30), lower switching voltage (by a factor of 5) and enhanced logic density (by a factor of 5). In addition, its non-volatility enables ultralow standby power, which is critical to modern computing.
