The recently obtained graphene transistor patent by Huawei can effectively increase the output resistance of chip components and devices, thereby maximizing RF performance. A new beginning for domestic chips.

In fact, Huawei started the research and development of graphene materials very early. It was previously reported that Huawei will launch graphene batteries, but graphene chips have been used before that.

While developing traditional chips, Huawei should actively explore new directions and open new selling points. Currently, both Tsinghua and Huawei are focusing on graphene transistors.

Compared to silicon-based chips, carbon-based chips are superior in hardness, electrical conductivity, and thermal conductivity. Although their thickness is 1/200 of the hair, their strength is more than 200 times that of the hair.

It can be said that carbon-based chips have the best thermal and electrical conductivity, the strongest strength and the lightest weight. Its performance is 10 times higher than traditional chips, resulting in faster data transmission and lower power consumption.

Today, TSMC and Samsung have almost reached the limit of Moore’s Law in chip manufacturing, and chip technology is very hard to crack after three nanometers. Obviously, traditional chips have evolved to the last stage.

In other words, the physical limit of silicon-based chips is close. If you continue to catch the traditional track, it goes without saying that this track is still under blockade for our country.

Graphene is different from conventional chips. The transmission distance of traditional chips is constantly getting shorter, while graphene continues to increase the transmission speed of electrons.

Graphene, also known as black gold, is the material with the highest thermal conductivity ever known. By improving the quality of carbon nanotubes, it perfectly compensates for the excessive heat generation of carbon-based chips in terms of heat dissipation.
