The amount of time, effort, and money being put into research to develop faster computer processors is staggering. One of the big problems scientists have to overcome today in designing circuits and chips is the need for speed while being able to save power and run cool.

IBM researchers have devised a new breakthrough that uses DNA to build a scaffold for a circuit board. The advancement in lithographic patterning with self-assembly is a method that arranges the DNA origami structures on surfaces compatible with current semiconductor manufacturing equipment.

The industry is faced with a big challenge to create lithographic technology for sizes smaller than 22nm and the new IBM approach using DNA is promising and may ultimately provide a way to reach the under 22nm lithography realm.
