Scientists invent new transistor

Fudan University scientists have invented a new transistor that can be widely used in computers, cell phones and digital cameras.

The semi-floating gate (SFG) transistor is fast, small and uses less energy, according to the research team that developed it.

The team, led by professor Wang Pengfei, published details about the SFG transistor in Science magazine last Friday.

It was the first time Chinese scientists published their research in the microelectronics field in Science.

The SFG transistor is different from other transistors in that it has an embedded tunneling field-effect-transistor and can best be used for a CPU’s cache memory, imaging chips and dynamic random access memory.
