UA pursues revolutionary approach

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of Arizona are combining biology and electronics to produce a new generation of microchips containing wires grown with proteins from living cells. The work, funded by the National Science Foundation, could revolutionize the way microchips are made, leading to smaller, faster and more efficient circuits for cellphones, computers, MP3 players and other electronic devices.

In the laboratory, researchers plan to use microtubules to connect nano-sized components to standard microchip-sized circuits. That could enable chips to be smaller and perform more functions. Chips also could be produced for less cost with fewer layers of circuits.
