Submission + - NASA building massively heat-resistant chips (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: "NASA researchers have designed and built a new circuit chip that can take the heat of a blast furnace and keep on performing. Silicon Carbide (SiC) chips can operate in 600 degrees Celsius or 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit where conventional silicon-based electronics — limited to about 350 C — would fail. The new silicon carbide differential amplifier integrated circuit chip may provide benefits to anything requiring long-lasting electronic circuits in very hot environments such as jets, spacecraft and industrial machinery.In particular, NASA said SiC applications will include energy storage, renewable energy, nuclear power, electrical drives. http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/19316"
