Possible replacement for transistors: Ovonic Quantum Control

Abstract:
ECD Ovonics, a 1.6 billion dollar company that trades on the german and nasdaq (symbol ENER) exchanges, has announced a fundamentally new device with the potential to open a new field of semiconducting control devices The Ovonic Quantum Control, based on Stan Ovshinsky's invention of a unique proprietary all thin-film control device, is based on new physics and has multifunctionality beyond that of transistors. Its nanostructure size, great speed and very high current carrying capacity together with unusual modulation including gain, provide advantages over transistors.
