NEC positions carbon nanotubes for prime time

NEC Corp. has developed a method of positioning tiny tubes of carbon in a way that, 10 years from now, will make circuits run faster and consume less power than the fastest and most powerful silicon chips, the company said on Thursday. The process is an important step toward NEC's goal of developing chips that run at 15GHz to 20GHz while consuming about the same power as today's Pentium 4 processors made by Intel Corp.
