Researchers have developed circuits for energy efficient semiconductor integrated circuits..
The ternary number system uses 0, 1, 2, which reduces the amount of information and allows semiconductors to process data faster and more efficiently. For example, to express 128 in the current binary system would take 8 bits. In a ternary, 5 trits are enough.
Ulsan’s solution creates a metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) on a large wafer that uses a ternary number system for information processing, rather than a binary code..
The logic system developed by scientists can control the output power of devices depending on the indicators of energy leakage. In addition, it will also help to reduce the size of the chips..
If commercialized, the technology could positively paradigm shift in artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, the Internet of Things, robotics and other semiconductor-dependent areas..
The study was carried out with the support of Samsung Electronics, which is already developing ways to integrate the new system into its activities..
Earlier, we also reported on the development of a new architecture for a computer processor that independently encrypts and rearranges the bits of its code 20 times per second…
