A substrate technology developed by the University of Cornell is set to revolutionise the chip industry, academics there claimed.
The university has found a way of creating what it dubs a universal substrate, similar to layers found in geological strata throughout the world.
Boffins at Cornell, led by Yu Hwa La, said they have set the scene for a whole range of devices ranging from current silicon-based devices to opto-electronic devices.
The discovery is not just confined to academics. It was hailed by the IEEE as a real breakthrough which will provide a new basis for electronics technology. Full details of Yu?s discovery are at the Cornell Web site at http://www.cornell/edu.
