  • Development of a 10 nm-diameter nanowire transistor for ultra-low power consumption LSIs (Jun. 2012) A nanowire transistor is one of the most desired structures for the development of ultra-low power consumption LSIs. Toshiba has developed a 10 nm-diameter tri-gate nanowire transistor that saves the power during standby mode by a factor of ten by controlling the voltage applied to the substrate . This technique was presented at the 2012 Symposia on VLSI Technology & Circuits, an international conference on semiconductor devices held in the US in June 2012.

  • Toshiba Develops NPEngine™, the World's First Hardware Engine that Directly Streams Video Content from SSD to IP Networks (Apr. 2012) TOKYO-Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced the development of NPEngine™, the world's first hardware engine for streaming servers that directly delivers video content from SSD to IP networks, without accessing the server's CPU or memory resources. NPEngine can simultaneously deliver up to 64,000 high quality video streams at a rate of 40Gigabit per sec, far surpassing the performance of a typical server, and reducing power consumption, the number of servers and the space required.
