Magnetic switches could use 10,000 times less power than current silicon transistors

Magnetic switches could use 10,000 times less power than current silicon transistors | Ask Marty Tech Stuff | Scoop.it
New research from UC Berkeley provides a proof of concept for a magnetic switch that could make computers thousands of times more energy-efficient, and provide some amazing new abilities, too.

 

Computer engineering, but in particular mobile computer engineering, is all about playing a zero-sum game with yourself. Power and efficiency are constantly undercutting one another, creating confounding incentives for designers looking to set records for both talk time and processing speed. At this point it seems obvious that both speed and battery life are limited by the old process of laying down increasingly dense little fields of silicon transistors; whether it’s a quantum computer or a graphene chip, getting more computing power for less electrical power will require a fundamental shift in how we build computers.

 

A new study from UC Berkeley hopes to provide the basis for just such an advance, laying out their attempt at a silicon replacement they say uses up to 10,000 timesless power than prior solutions. They have designed a system that uses magnetic switches in place of transistors, negating the need for a constant electric current. The idea of a magnetic transistor has been discussed since the early 1990s, but the idea’s downfall has always been the need to create a strong magnetic field to orient the magnets for easy switching; all or most of the power saved by the magnets is spent creating the field needed to actually use those magnets.

 

This new study, published in Nature, uses a wire made of tantalum, a somewhat rare element used to make capacitors in everything from Blu-Ray players to mobile phones. Tantalum is a good, light-weight conductor, but it has one particularly odd property that’s made it uniquely useful for magnetic applications: when a current flows through the tantalum wire, all clockwise-spinning electrons migrate to one side of the wire, all counter-clockwise-spinning to the other. The physical movement of these electrons creates a polarization in the system — the same sort of polarization prior researchers have had to create with an expensive magnetic field.

 

If this approach were successful and practical, we could begin to capitalize on some of the shared benefits of all magnetic computing strategies, the most glaring of which is that magnetic switches do not require constant current to maintain their state. Much like a liquid crystal in an e-ink display, a magnetic transistor will maintain its assigned state until actively flipped. This means that a theoretical magnetic processor could use far less energy than semi-conducting silicon ones by accruing energy savings whenever it is not actively doing work. And since tantalum is a fairly well-known material, its incorporation into the manufacturing process shouldn’t prove too difficult.
