Yeah, we've heard companies toot their own horns after creating some newfangled chip that sucks down less power than versions prior, but MIT and Texas Instruments are just now getting around to taking their turn. Set to wow onlookers at tomorrow's International Solid- State Circuits Conference, a new microchip will be unveiled that operates at just 0.3-volts -- quite a bit less than most others, which function at around 1-volt. Currently, the device is simply a proof of concept, but those responsible for this bugger are already hoping for it to be used in "longer-lasting, self-charging cellphones, medical devices, self-contained sensor networks, etc." in five or so years. We're watching the clock, you two.
