First Graphene Processor Arrives Sooner Than Expected.


Digital Core Design, Polish design laboratories from Bytom have developed the world’s first processor made of graphene. BYT-ON – that’s the name of this breakthrough solution – contains an unique architecture, which allows to process all operations with speeds reaching up to 1/300 the speed of light. Furthermore, it features minimal power consumption, as little as 1 fA/MHz, so that the processor can work even for 3 months on a single battery charge.

Graphene Computer Chip Another Step Closer.

graphene computer chip

University of Arizona physicists are making discoveries that may advance electronic circuit technology and bring the graphene computer chip a step closer to being a reality.

The tricky part physicists have yet to figure out how to control the flow of electrons through the material, a necessary prerequisite for putting it to work in any type of electronic circuit. Graphene behaves very different than silicon, the material currently used in semiconductors.

Jumbo Flakes Found in Madagascar Resource


Energizer Resources Confirms Jumbo Flake Graphite With +90% Purity; DRA Mineral Projects Makes Initial Equity Investment in Energizer


TORONTO, ONTARIO, Mar 26, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Energizer Resources Inc. CA:EGZ +6.33%ENZR +9.57% (frankfurt:YE5) (“Energizer” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received positive initial metallurgical test results from its Green Giant Project in Madagascar and that DRA Mineral Projects has made an equity investment into the Company.

Graphite ore samples from the Fotsy and Molo zones were submitted to the North Carolina State University (NCSU) Minerals Research Laboratory in Asheville, North Carolina for preliminary evaluations to define potential for recovery of commercial products. Simple mechanical crushing with no flotation yielded flake sizes of +50 mesh, which according to Tom Burkett, Vice President of Graphite Materials & Systems at SGL Carbon Group – the world’s largest carbon company – is regarded by the industry as jumbo flake. Both ores have produced graphite concentrates at purities of +90%.
