HP Technology Lets Future Chips Live With Mistakes

Researchers at Hewlett-Packard believe they have developed a manufacturing technique that will allow chip makers to push the performance envelope after conventional transistors reach the atomic level, the company is expected to announce Thursday.

The technique, based on a mathematical principle called coding theory, will let future generations of microprocessor circuits be reliably manufactured in high volumes, according to HP. Developed as part of HP Labs' "crossbar latch" research project, which aims to replace the microprocessor transistor within the decade, the technique will be described in the June 6 issue of the Institute of Physics' Nanotechnology publication.
