Gallium nitride processor: Next-generation technology for space exploration
Gallium nitride is a promising new semiconductor material with properties that enable it to operate at higher voltages, frequencies and temperatures at higher efficiencies than silicon. With support from NASA, Fulton Schools Assistant Professor Yuji Zhao and his research team are working on ways to use the material to develop a high-temperature microprocessor for space mission applications. The article was also published by Tech News n’ Gadgets, Phys.org, and ECN (Electronics Component News) magazine. Read more about Zhao’s gallium nitride research.
