Microelectronic Circuitry May Restore Healthy Brain Function After Injury

Microelectronic CircuitryPedram Mohseni, Assistant Professor of EECS at CWRU, and Randolph J. Nudo, a professor of molecular and integrative physiology at the University of Kansas Medical Center, believe repeated communications between distant neurons in the weeks after injury may spark long-reaching axons to form and connect. As DailyTech reports, “this type of work was inspired by the brain injuries and trauma the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan face.”

"Electromechanical Computing at 500°C with Silicon Carbide"

nanoelectromechanical switchLogic circuits capable of operating at high temperatures can alleviate expensive heat-sinking and thermal-management requirements of modern electronics and are enabling for advanced propulsion systems. Replacing existing complementary metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors with silicon carbide (SiC) nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) switches is a promising approach for low-power, high-performance logic operation at temperatures higher than 300°C, beyond the capability of conventional silicon technology. These switches are capable of achieving virtually zero off-state current, microwave operating frequencies, radiation hardness, and nanoscale dimensions. Here, we report a microfabricated electromechanical inverter with SiC complementary NEMS switches capable of operating at 500°C with ultralow leakage current.
