Caltech scientists have created a “self-healing” Chip March 11, 2013

Scientists from the California Institute of Technology have developed a “self-healing” chip, which alone can cope with problems such as loss of power and damage the transistor.

To restore the chip takes a few microseconds, and dimensions allow it to fit on the surface of the coin the U.S. one-cent denomination. The design of the chip includes sensors that monitor power consumption, current and operating temperature, and integrated circuit responsible for error detection. If a problem is the chip configuration changes automatically. That is how you jump the problem.

In fact, no self-healing does not happen, but it did not prevent the development of a scientist called that way.

This is not the first self-healing electronics. In December last year, scientists at the University of Illinois have developed a scheme that can recover the conductivity of the liquid metal through the release of empty seats in it microcapsules.
