Data = Electrons

In essence, data transfer is not a matter of sending “bits and bytes”.

Data transfer is a matter of transporting electrons between a sending and a receiving unit in the fastest, most efficient way possible. The electrons are then translated into “data” by whichever device or application is transmitting the electrons.

In a wire for every electron reaching the receiver you need additional at least 10.000 electrons just to charge the metal without ever reaching the destination.

The more data you need to transfer, the higher the bandwidth required and the higher the energy consumption.

And herein lies the problem.

The problem

As chips and chiplets are getting increasing smaller and the need for data capacity is growing exponentially, the tech and semiconductor industries are facing some serious challenges:

1) Current data transfer solutions are about to reach their physical limitations. You simply cannot continue increasing data capacity in ever less physical space indefinitely.

2) Nearly all attempts to improve data density for chip-to-chip communication focus on already known data transfer solutions.

3) Each new generation requires extensive (and costly!) R&D work, and the solutions only last for a few years before running into the same old problem all over again: lack of space and lack of data density.

4) The industry desperately needs an alternative solution which enables high data bandwidth at a low density and low energy consumption that will last for decades to come.

The 0eC solution: Free electrons

The 0eC technology allows chip manufacturers to do what they do best, design great chips, while not having to worry about the chip-to-chip communication.

0eC technology replaces the current electric conductors and shrinks the needed diameter for connections to 1nm, and it can easily be implemented into current manufacturing processes.

The ‘connections’ consist of tiny tubes which guide free electrons along their path, providing the most efficient way physically possible. Therein lies the revolution. And the benefits are enormous.

Key Benefits:

  • Up to 1,000x higher bandwidth per channel — up to 1,000 Gbps per connection.
  • Up to 99.9% less energy consumption for data transport.
  • Scalable down to 1 nm with the ability to transport 10,000 times the amount of data compared with copper.

Only The Beginning

0eC is currently working on a solution for solving current data bottlenecks in 2.5D chips.

But the technology can be applied to nearly all areas of data transfer — from the tiniest applications to long-distance, high-bandwidth communication — and represents a true revolution in data transfer.
