Announcing the Winners of the RISC-V Soft CPU Contest

As the number of connected devices skyrockets, the attack surface also increases. To solve the growing challenge of mitigating cybersecurity threats, every component in a system must be evaluated for its vulnerabilities. Processors today are able to run billions of instructions per second – this means you can access a world of content at your fingertips, but there’s also a risk of exploitation. Every processor requires built-in security features to…

Elektor article: A Microprocessor Made From Carbon Nanotube FETs

Researchers at MIT have developed a microprocessor based on carbon nanotube transistors. As described in the journal Nature, it can be fabricated using traditional silicon chip manufacturing techniques. This represents an important step towards a practical realisation of the next generation of microprocessors using carbon nanotubes.The fabrication of carbon nanotube field effect transistors (CNFETs) is particularly important for the construction of next-generation computers. CNFETs have about ten times more energy efficiency…
