“There came to be a mantra that you have to have transistors to build computers,” he said. “A latch is a different way of achieving that same function, but it turns out it has significant advantages over a transistor.”

Just think - PDAs that pack more processing power than the fastest PCs today! :laughing:

Seriously though, pretty cool stuff. I’d image that if there is a lot of money to be made (and I don’t doubt that there is in the electronics/computer industry) this technology will hit the markets as quickly as manufacters can manage.
