Not Making Atoms any Smaller
Organised By IOP South West Branch
Tags #BigData #Salisbury #SouthWestBranch #SouthWest #IOPBranchEvents
November 19, 2019
Sentences containing search word
This talk by Ian Phillips, a senior member of the IEEE and Visiting Professor at Liverpool, is concerned with the rapid developments in electronic control systems and the problems/challenges that are emerging as the size of transistors approaches the size of individual atoms
It was a relay, but it enabled the creation of the first control systems which found immediate use for military and commercial purposes
With each step the sophistication of the control systems grew, and the products based on them ever cheaper and more pervasive
After 186 years are we approaching the end of the electronic system scaling, that society has accepted as a fundamental law? Venue information        * Wheelchair access        * Car park        * Coffee and Tea from 19:00 Image: ©  Zephyris, Wikimedia [CC BY-SA 3
