Generic Re-programmable Electronic Circuits

It is possible to create flexible and controllable pathways of conduction by polarizing atoms. This means a single microchip or electronic circuit can be reprogrammed to accomplish different specialized functions. Perhaps someday soon, we’ll have a generic kind of electronics woven into everything we use.

Electronic circuits with reconfigurable pathways closer to reality – [epfl.ch]

Multitasking circuits capable of reconfiguring themselves in real time and switching functions as the need arises – this is the promising application stemming from a discovery made at EPFL and published in Nature Nanotechnology. Other potential uses: miniaturising our electronic devices and developing resilient circuits.
