reports that HP announced that engineers in its research department have come up with a breakthrough discovery which could help lead to the development of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) which are up to 8 times denser than currently possible. These FPGAs will use less energy per computation than those currently produced. FPGAs are integrated circuits with programmable logic components that can be adapted by the end user for specific applications. Stan Williams, an HP Senior Fellow and director, says of the development: "As conventional chip electronics continue to shrink, Moore's Law is on a collision course...
