Georgia Tech Developing Next Generation Chips For NASA Spacecrafts

The university is developing new highly integrated, silicon-based microchips that will be capable of operating in complex radar systems, such as those used by NASA. The U.S. Department of Defense is supporting Georgia Tech’s silicon chip research, which is known as the “Silicon-Germanium Transmit-Receive Module Project.” Silicon-germanium chips are showing great promise because of its capacity to hold a great number of very high-speed circuits on a single chip, and its materials are cost-effective, and they will have improved efficiency. These are the same benefits that silicon technology has already delivered to the consumer electronics market.
