Chinese scientists develop transistors about the width of a human DNA strand
There are still a lot of new articles saying that they won’t buy any transistors from China because they are of low technology and quality. They are still living in the past about 30 years ago. There aren’t any transistors fabricated and assembled in Silicon Valley anymore.
The most advanced computer chips on the market today use 7-nanometre transistors. Professor Yin Huaxiang said his team had developed 3nm transistors – about the width of a human DNA strand.
The smaller transistors become, the more can be fitted onto chips, increasing the performance of a processor exponentially, said Yin, deputy director of microelectronics device and integrated technology at the Institute of Microelectronics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.
Transistors are the building blocks of processors. Those built with 3nm transistors would increase computing speed and cut energy consumption, Yin said. So, a smartphone user, for instance, could play games that demanded lots of computing power all day without the need to recharge batteries.

According to Dragon News Russia, sending a parcel from China to Russia, it took 70 days delivery in the past. In recent years, Cainiao has shortened the time to 10 days through the connection of the intelligent logistic backbone network. Soon, it will be speeded up again to “deliver on the same day”. This increasing...
Youtube Whenever you search for keywords “transistor + China”, the following Youtube will always come to the top of the search On his Youtube description, the writer says, “They say you should never buy generic transistors from China. I also say you shouldn’t buy cheap generic transistors from China if you can help it… The...
