RRAM could give “rise” to more energy efficient 3D chips

Pioneered by Stanford engineers a few years ago, resistive random-access memory (RRAM) is an emerging type of computer memory based on a new semiconductor material that relies on temperature and voltage to store data. While it's proven faster and more energy efficient than current technology, exactly how RRAM works remained a mystery. Now, a Stanford team has used a new tool to investigate the chips and found the optimal temperature range was lower than expected, paving the way for more efficient memory.

Gearing up space robots with metallic glass

Bulk metallic glass, a metal alloy, doesn't get brittle in extreme cold

In a quest to give robots human-like grace even in the frozen wastes of space, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California is looking at exotic gears made out of exotic materials. In a pair of papers, technologist Douglas Hofmann and his team describe how high-precision gears made of Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG) could lead to more graceful robots that cost less to build.
