In romance with technology, World is getting smaller and smaller and even we are getting more closer and closer, thank God to Internet. In March IBM has revealed world’s smallest computer and set the record, but things haven’t stop there.
Now team at the University of Michigan has produced World’s smallest Computer that is a temperature sensing ‘computer’ measuring 0.04 cubic millimeters. The insane thing about this computer is that it is ten time smaller then the size of IBM’s computer. It is measure at 2mm x 2mm x 4mm.
The device can help in oncology research. “Since the temperature sensor is small and biocompatible, we can implant it into a mouse where cancer cells are growing,” said Gary Luker, a UM professor of radiology and biomedical engineering.
It has the ability to report temperatures in a cluster of cells within a tumor with an error rate of around 0.1 degrees Celsius.
The device is designed as a precision temperature sensor, this computer uses photovoltaics, a method of converting light into electricity. It consists of a processor, system memory, and wireless transmitters and receivers that send and receive data through light. It uses electronic pulses to convert temperatures into timed intervals.
The intervals are measured on-chip against a steady time interval sent by the base station and then converted into a temperature. As a result, the computer can report temperatures in minuscule regions, such as a cluster of cells, with an error of about 0.1 degree Celsius.
In addition to the RAM and photovoltaics, the new micro-computing device — Michigan Micro Mote — has processors and wireless transmitters and receivers.
