Sam_T_76Reliability of spintronic computer processors.I understand the theoretical benefits of spintronic devices. I’m curious about the reliability though. It seems the operating process is pretty delicate and has some statistical unpredictability to it. I also wonder how easily a device could be effected by environmental magnetic fields or EMF. I’m thinking you might not want something like a manned spacecraft to be a first-adopter. Maybe start out with a video game console chip, where the consequence of errata would be minimal.

DigitalHeadReliability of spintronic computer processorsWhen Toyota was having trouble with their electronic accelerator systems they went so far as to consult with NASA about possible cosmic ray interference. I don’t doubt that the first generation spintronic devices will do some pretty unexpected things. I like the concept though. Tuesday, September 13, 2011
