IBM announces the first 7 nanometer chips,

IBM chips away" top 5 players in the semiconductor chip business"
IBM has just annouched a major breakthrough in terms of " miniaturisation" with the creation of the first 7-nanometer chips. This means that the miniaturized electronics are so small that transistors on the chips are only 7 billionth of a meter in length. That’s 1,400 times smaller than a human hair.

This latest IBM research breakthrough milestone is the fruit of a $3 billion, five-year investment in chip research and development that the company announced last year.  Chips are the engine of the hardware industry ranging from the smartphones to robotic and rocket technology. Globally chips are becoming smaller every year ( summarized as Moore’s Law (after a prediction made in 1965 by Intel chairman emeritus Gordon Moore that the number of components on a chip would double every couple of years)

Much of todays consumer electronic industry is powered by the the best chips, such as microprocessors that power our desktops and laptops, use 22-nanometer and 14-nanometer technology. The next manufacturing technology to arrive will be 10-nanometer production,  followed by  the  7-nanometer chips

Demise of PC and the Rise Of DNA Computing

Intel's recent unveiling of "3D" transistors could prove to be a game-changing technology for the chip industry, but it's just one of many quiet revolutions the integrated circuit has experienced over the 53 years since its inception. Intel just announced that it has invented a 3D "Tri-Gate" transistor that will allow the company to keep shrinking chips.

Intel says the transistors will use 50 percent less power, conduct more current and provide 37 percent more speed than their 2D counterparts thanks to vertical fins of silicon substrate that stick up through the other layers,

Jack Kilby's 1958 invention killed the vacuum tube and led computer design down a path toward ever-shrinking circuits and inspiring Moore's law, which states that the number of transistors on a microchip will double roughly every two years. The law has proved true thanks to a number of innovations, and may get new life thanks to Intel's Tri-Gate technology, revealed last week.

DNA computing is fundamentally similar to parallel computing in that it takes advantage of the many different molecules of DNA to try many different possibilities at once.

DNA computing also offers much lower power consumption than traditional silicon computers. DNA uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) as fuel to allow ligation or as a means to heat the strand to cause disassociation.Both strand hybridization and the hydrolysis of the DNA backbone can occur spontaneously, powered by the potential energy stored in DNA. 

Consumption of two ATP molecules releases 1.5 x 10−19 J. Even with a large number of transitions per second using two ATP molecules, power output is still low. For instance, Kahan reports 109 transitions per second with an energy consumption of 10−10 W and similarly Shapiro reports a system producing 7.5 x 1011 outputs in 4000 sec resulting in an energy consumption rate of ~ 10−10 W.

Were it not for Moore's Law, the discoveries that keep it honest, computers would still be hulking behemoths, and the laptops, tablets, and cell phones of today simply wouldn't exist. Thanks to innovation, portable computers have existed since 1981, and they were surprisingly affordable for a first-generation product—the first portable, the Osborne 1, cost less than $2,000 when it debuted.
