Atomic antennae transmit quantum information across a microchip

World Exclusive Proof: Apollo landing is a hoax !!

Picture below is taken 50 kilometers over the Moon surface. 50 kilometers on Moon surface is 3 cm in length on that picture.
Apollo astronauts drove 100 kilometers on Moon surface ! Check down the claimed trails length.
Stretching over the Moon mountains !
Thus, there was no any driving on the Moon surface by Apollo astronauts.
Russian Luna 21 vehicle in 1973 was 6 tons heavy. However, no weight was needed for return. How Apollo 15 drove on Moon and return astronauts safely?

We Will Soon Live in a 100 Gbps World

Unnoticed by Silicon Valley, telecom is on the move again.
“[T]here is a need to increase deployments of higher speed optical wavelengths such as 40 and 100 gigabit. We, therefore, raised our forecast and now project that in the total WDM market, which includes both metro and long haul, 40 gigabit wavelength shipments will grow at a CAGR of over 40 percent and the recently available 100 gigabit wavelengths will grow at a CAGR over 200 percent. By 2015, the combined 40 and 100 gigabit wavelengths may contribute up to $4.7 billion of optical revenue.”

End your addiction on oil. Now !

If Not Now, When?
It is about time. For the last 50 years, America (and Europe and Asia) have treated the Middle East as if it were just a collection of big gas stations: Saudi station, Iran station, Kuwait station, Bahrain station, Egypt station, Libya station, Iraq station, United Arab Emirates station, etc. Our message to the region has been very consistent: “Guys (it was only guys we spoke with), here’s the deal. Keep your pumps open, your oil prices low, don’t bother the Israelis too much and, as far as we’re concerned, you can do whatever you want out back.

Exa computing: How to distribute computations across multiple cores

Project Angstrom’s vision to address the four major challenges of extreme-scale computing is based on two key foundations: creating a revolutionary SElf-awarE Computational model called SEEC, and a fully distributed factored architecture for both hardware and software.
SEEC will also enable systems that are orders of magnitude more energy efficient and dependable by incorporating explicitly energy and resiliency goals into the hardware, operating system, compiler and languages. Green computing?
One way to improve communication between cores, which the Angstrom project is investigating, is optical communication — using light instead of electricity to move data.
Devadas has demonstrated that small circuits connected to the cores can calculate the allotment of bandwidth and switch the direction of the connections in a single clock cycle.
The allocation of the chunks is performed by circuits hard-wired into the chip, not by the computer’s operating system. “As far as I know, nothing like this is going on anywhere else,” Dennis says.

Computer architecture basics

This document is a collection of web pages on computer architecture.

The first part is an introduction to digital circuits. We recommend you read the pages in this order:

  1. Gates. Here, we introduce the fundamental building blocks of digital computers.
  2. Truth tables. We discuss truth tables as a way both of describing an existing circuit and of specifying a circuit to be built.
  3. Combinatorial circuits. We introduce circuits whose output values depend only on a combination of the input values.
  4. Logic expressions. We explain how to describe circuits as algebraic formulae and how to manipulate those formulae with algebraic laws.
  5. Multiplexer. A particular combinatorial circuit so commonly used that we discuss it separately.
  6. Demultiplexer. A particular combinatorial circuit so commonly used that we discuss it separately.
  7. Decoder. A particular combinatorial circuit so commonly used that we discuss it separately.
  8. Binary arithmetic. In this section, we introduce the fundamentals of binary arithmetic and representation of numbers.
  9. Circuits for binary arithmetic. We show different circuits for binary arithmetic and explain trade-offs between speed and number of gates.
  10. Latches and flip-flops. Flip-flops are the basic elements of sequential circuits, the way gates are the basic elements of combinatorial circuits.
  11. State table. We discuss state tables as a way both of describing an existing sequential circuit and as a way of specifying a sequential circuit to be built.
  12. Sequential circuits. We introduce circuits whose output values depend not only on the inputs, but also on previous input and output values.
  13. Registers. A register is a particularly simple sequential circuit that can be instructed to store its input values indefinitely.
  14. Counters. A counter is a another particularly simple sequential circuit that normally increments its stored value for each clock pulse.
  15. Binary multiplication. We show how to build a circuit for binary multiplication.
  16. Tri-state logic circuits. Tri-state logic circuits represent a pragmatic solution to some problems of circuit complexity.
  17. Buses. With tri-state logic, we can use a bus to transport data.
  18. Memories. While memories are clearly sequential circuits, they have a special structure that makes it interesting to look at them separately.
  19. Read-only memories. A read-only memory is nothing more than a combinatorial circuit, but often built as a memory.
Next, we design a number of specific combinatorial and sequential circuits, which will be the building blocks of a simple computer:
  1. Counter with clear. This sequential circuit is nominally an ordinary counter, but an additional input allows us to clear the contents of the counter.
  2. Counter register. This sequential circuit is a combination of a counter and a register.
  3. Counter register with clear. This sequential circuit is a combination of a counter with clear and a register.
  4. Counter register with clear and explicit increment. This sequential circuit is similar to a counter register with clear, except that it does not increment unless explicitly instructed to.
  5. Micro memory. This is a combinatorial circuit sometimes in the form of a PROM.
  6. Instruction decoder. This is a combinatorial circuit sometimes in the form of a PROM.
  7. Arithmetic and logic unit. This is a combinatorial circuit for doing arithmetic and logic operations. The operation can be selected by the value of inputs.
  8. The first computer. We present our first simple computer, allowing us to make some very simple computations.
Now, we gradually complicate our simple computer:
  1. Conditional jumps. So far, our computer could only do unconditional jumps. Now, we show how to introduce conditional jumps as well.
  2. Subprograms. We add support for procedures and functions in high-level languages and discuss call/return protocols.
  3. Parameter passing. We add support for passing parameters to subroutines on the stack.
  4. Local variables We show how to use existing instructions to allocate space on the stack for local variables.
  5. Interrupts. Our computer must know how to react to external events from timers and peripherals. The mechanism for interrupts makes that possible.

Backgate: Computer programmer bamboozled federal officials !

A onetime biomedical technician with a penchant for gambling, Mr. Montgomery is at the center of a tale that features terrorism scares, secret White House briefings, backing from prominent Republicans, backdoor deal-making and fantastic-sounding computer technology.
Now, federal officials want nothing to do with him and are going to extraordinary lengths to ensure that his dealings with Washington stay secret. C.I.A. officials, though, came to believe that Mr. Montgomery’s technology was fake in 2003, but their conclusions apparently were not relayed to the military’s Special Operations Command, which had contracted with his firm.

BAD HARDWARE: Backdoor deal to stay secret? Where is the max possibility od backdooring? Win XP and Office ! Add Facebook and Google ! Or Sum of the Luminous Treatment and Programming Essence ? A Pentagon study in January found that it had paid $285 billion in three years to more than 120 contractors accused of fraud or wrongdoing.

Update: Intel to build fab for 14-nm chips

Update: Intel to build fab for 14-nm chips

Continuing its aggressive fab expansion efforts, Intel Corp. on Friday (Feb. 18) announced plans to invest more than $5 billion to build a new chip manufacturing facility at its site in Chandler, Ariz.

On the other hand, Intel recently obtained a grant from the Israeli government to build a 300-mm fab in that nation.
At 11-nm, it reiterated its concept of a ''complementary'' or mix-and-match strategy, in which 193-nm immersion could work hand-in-hand with EUV or maskless lithography to enable advanced chip designs.

BAD HARDWARE: ? In 1974 in 10 microns Intel produced 4040 processor. Now, in 11 nanometers, its chip could contain 1 million 4040 processors. Seems that in some 40+ years productivity of processor production is improved at that very scale due to two dimensional scaling.

Sanitazing SSD

Sanitizing data from storage media is a critical component of data management, especially for governments and the enterprise. Sanitization is well-understood for traditional magnetic storage, such as hard drives and tapes. Newer Solid State Disks (SSDs), however, have a much different internal architecture, so it is unclear whether what has worked on magnetic media will work on SSDs as well.Wiping HD up to 35 times will help in residual magnetism for older hard disks, but what to do with SSD? The sanitation problem is quite different in that case.

Human civilization to end by 2045?

The human civilization - as we know it - will come to an end by 2045, inventor/futurist Ray Kurzweil told TIME in a recent interview.Kurzweil believes that we're approaching a moment when computers will become intelligent, and not just intelligent but more intelligent than humans. When that happens, humanity - our bodies, our minds, our civilization - will be completely and irreversibly transformed. He believes that this moment is not only inevitable but imminent. According to his calculations, the end of human civilization as we know it is about 35 years away, the magazine reported.

"At some point, this area will get kicked by shaking from one of the many quakes that happen south of the San Andreas Fault," says Weldon. "It will rupture northward along the fault. When it comes into the San Bernardino Valley, seismic energy will be directed by a series of basins, including the Los Angeles Basin, into the most highly populated part of Southern California."

BAD HARDWARE: Bad prospects in hardware would be in that case even worse.

Sandy Bridge Collapsed as its name suggests!

Intel admits $700 million hit for Sandy Bridge chipset problems
In some cases, the Serial-ATA (SATA) ports within the chipsets may degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD drives
SANDY BRIDGE processors are going to take longer to reach market because Intel has to replace thousands of the faulty Intel 6 series Cougar Point support chips it has shipped. The fault is said to have been solved after it was detected this month. Over 100,000 units of the Sandy Bridge chipsets with the faulty Cougar Point support chips have been shipped since the fourth quarter of 2010.

And it's on one of the later layers of metal so Intel actually can utilize all the chipset pipeline that has been there and is there in the fab right now. Because the chipset is built in a relatively mature 65-nm process, Smith said there is confidence that the corrected chip can ramp up production quickly.
