Brave New Galaxy

August 29, 2010

Lyric Semiconductor announced it's new design for a microchip: the probability processor. Yes it sounds a little like Douglas Adams' infinite improbability drive from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Lyric's new technology is part physical changes and partly different construction in how circuits process information. They claim it will yet again shrink processor size and give a speed boost. But for now the applications would have to be tested one by one and Lyric is looking at error and fraud detection and other things where it would seem most logical to be looking from a probability perspective. So is this something new and revolutionary? An impossible design? Or just normal advancements beefed up with marketing?
