IBM envisions 3D chips with fluidic networks for future PCs

Posted on Friday, November 18 2011 @ 22:06:09 CET by

Engadget reports IBM engineers are working on a technology to stack hundreds of silicon wafers and utilize dual fluidic networks between them to create 3D processors:
In such a setup, one network carries in charged fluid to power the chip, while the second carries away the same fluid after it has picked up heat from the active transistors. Of course, 3D chips are already on the way, and liquid cooled components are nothing new, but powering a PC by fluids instead of wires has never been done before. Bruno Michel, who's leading Big Blue's research team, has high hopes for the technology, because future processors will need the extra cooling and reduced power consumption it can provide. Michel says he and his colleagues have demonstrated that it's possible to use a liquid to transfer power via a network of fluidic channels, and they to plan build a working prototype chip by 2014.
