In this age of technology, when we at Dell Service Center In Mumbai finally thought that things could not go any faster because everything has evolved too much and it will take a new revolution for things to go any further. A new type of RAM has been invented by the researchers at University of Victoria. Even though new RAMs might come and go everyday but this, as they call it LI-RAM will prove to be a breakthrough to make information processing faster, efficient and durable as compared to the present technology.
This new technology is invented and patented by the scholars as Victoria University to help people who complain about their computer either being too-slow or of blowing up smartphones. This is the type of technology that we have been waiting for, one which will make our devices fast, energy-efficient, not so hot and let us do all our work with ease. What makes this RAM so unique is that it is made of a special kind of material, made and processed at the same university, for this purpose only. This magical material is itself called LI-RAM and it works its wonder by transforming your computers to supercomputers. Maybe not so much.
Wondering why is it called LI-RAM? Well it is an abbreviation for a long and boring name that except those scientists no one will ever remember, i.e. (light induced random access memory), although at first I thought that the scientist who invented the material must have been Chinese hence the name LI-RAM. Natia Frank a material chemist from University of Canada stated, “the material known as LI-RAM (light-induced random-access memory), would use light to store and process data instead of electricity. This means computer processors would consume minimal power, discharge minimal heat and last longer.
A project that started as just a bid to overcome the “Power wall” has succeeded its capabilities way past the horizon. As stated by the developers LI-RAM would estimetly consume 10% less power according to the prevailing standards and apart form this will also process information faster. In one survet by The Hindu it was stated that information processing technologies consume almost 10% of the world’s electricity consumption and if the developers of the LI-RAM are to be belived it will cut this consumption by half.
The most unique feature of this material except from the fact that it makes our computer fast is that it rapidly changes its magnetic properties when hit with green light. This means that information can be processed and stored at the single molecule level, allowing for the development of universal memory — a technology that has, until now, been hypothetical. This material will not only come handy in the field of computers and smartphones, but will also be applicable in medical imaging, solar cells among other things. Even though it has just been invented but the talks are going on between the developers as well as several international electronics manufacturers hence LI-RAM being commercialized can be seen in near future. This is it for now, stay tuned for several other useful and informative articles.
