Semiconductor Chipmakers Closely Following Research Studies on Active Electronic Components
The active electronic components market is witnessing a number of developments lately. Neuromorphic chips constitute of a network of transistors that interact in a way similar to that of neurons, thereby allowing them to process analog input such as visual information. Neuromorphic chips process the analog inputs more accurately and faster than silicon chips. Processors designed to mimic neurons and neural circuits offer great advantages in terms of scalability and power consumption. Optoelectro
