U of A researchers develop low-power chip

Researchers at the Univ of Alberta have developed a computer chip that uses 100 times less energy than current leading-edge chips. The chip uses new a new method of processing digital data called analog decoding, which uses very low levels of power to execute its detection algorithm analog processing technology. The research was conducted at…

Researchers gain access to low-cost microfluidic chips

The Canadian Microelectronics Corp has entered an agreement with Edmonton-based Micralyne Inc to enable access to microfluidic technology by university researchers across Canada. Under the agreement, CMC acts as a broker between university faculty and Micralyne, and assumes the costs associated with the design of customized microfluidic microchips. These chips, which allow minute volumes of…
