NASA built circuit chip to sustain temperatures of 500 degrees Celsius

NASA researchers said that they have designed and built a circuit chip that easily can sustain temperatures of 500 degrees Celsius (932 degrees F). According to the organization, the "silicon carbide differential amplifier integrated circuit chip" ran for more than 1700 hours at more than 500 degrees Celsius before showing degradation or failure.

NASA researchers said that they have designed and built a circuit chip that easily can sustain temperatures of 500 degrees Celsius (932 degrees F).

According to the organization, the "silicon carbide differential amplifier integrated circuit chip" ran for more than 1700 hours at more than 500 degrees Celsius before showing degradation or failure. However, don't start dreaming about the possibilities of a 20 GHz chip in your next PC: NASA said that the technology isn't likely to make its way into the consumer space.
