Elad Mentovich, a PhD candidate at the Tel Aviv University, has developed a memory transistor using carbon molecules that can be used to both transfer and store energy and eliminate the requirement for a capacitor.
Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices are becoming popular the hardware of the future and these devices are on par with their predecessors, laptop or desktop, in terms of storage capacity and computing power. However, these mobile devices have limited usage due to low RAM memory, which restricts the number of applications that can be operated at one time and consumes battery power rapidly. Hence, the idea of developing a sophisticated transistor, which can perform the function of both a capacitor and a transistor was a dream till now. Mentovich has achieved this and the molecular memory transistor helps to overcome the afore-mentioned problems.\To read more, click here.
