About Nanochip

Nanochip is a fabless semiconductor company that is developing a range of removable storage chips that can be used in consumer electronics products such as digital cameras, cell phones, PDA's, etc. as well as laptop computers and fast servers. The storage chips that are in development at Nanochip are based upon the technology of writing domains in phase-change media with current passed through an array of atomic force probe tips in contact with the media. Either the media or the tip array can be moved with micro-mechanical (MEMs) movers to write, read, and erase bits on the media that are in the range of 10 to 20 nanometers in size. The benefit of the Nanochip technology is that their storage chips are not dependent on the limits of lithography. The recorded bits are defined by the tip/media interface, whereas the chip itself is made with older and much less expensive lithography tools. The media itself has been shown to support domains as small as 5 nanometers which in the future could lead to 100 GB individual dies or storage chips. Nanochip has partnered with several large companies to help in our product development. We also work closely with several well known experts at major universities who specialize in atomic force probe tips and phase change media. Nanochip licenses the phase change media from Ovonyx, Inc. in Michigan.

Researchers Reprogram Biological Tissue Using Silicone Nanochip

Feb 17, 2022

Researchers Reprogram Biological Tissue Using Silicone Nanochip Device reprograms tissue function by applying a harmless electric spark to deliver specific genes in a fraction of a second. Indiana University02.17.22 Science fiction could soon become science reality for healthcare practitioners. Indiana University School of Medicine  researchers have created a silicon nanochip that can instantly change skin tissue into blood vessels and nerve cells. Detailed in  Nature Protocols , the nanochip could one day potentially be used to treat various conditions and diseases. "This report on how to exactly produce these tissue nanotransfection chips will enable other researchers to participate in this new development in regenerative medicine," said Chandan Sen, director of the Indiana Center for Regenerative Medicine and Engineering, associate vice president for research, and Distinguished Professor at the IU School of Medicine. The technology—called tissue nanotransfection—is a non-invasive nanochip device that can reprogram tissue function by applying a harmless electric spark to deliver specific genes in a fraction of a second. In laboratory studies, the device successfully converted skin tissue into blood vessels to repair a badly injured leg. The technology is currently being used to reprogram tissue for different kinds of therapies, such as repairing brain damage caused by stroke or preventing and reversing nerve damage caused by diabetes. "This small silicon chip enables nanotechnology that can change the function of living body parts," Sen said. "For example, if someone's blood vessels were damaged because of a traffic accident and they need blood supply, we can't rely on the pre-existing blood vessel anymore because that is crushed, but we can convert the skin tissue into blood vessels and rescue the limb at risk."   In the Nature Protocols report, researchers published engineering details about how the chip is manufactured. Sen said this manufacturing information will lead to further development of the chip in hopes that it will someday be used clinically in many settings around the world. "This is about the engineering and manufacturing of the chip," he said. "The chip's nanofabrication process typically takes five to six days and, with the help of this report, can be achieved by anyone skilled in the art."   Sen said he hopes to seek U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the chip within a year. Once it receives FDA approval, the device could be used for clinical research in people, including patients in hospitals, health centers and emergency rooms, as well as in other emergency situations by first responders or the military. Other study authors include Yi Xuan, Subhadip Ghatak, Andrew Clark, Zhigang Li, Savita Khanna, Dongmin Pak, Mangilal Agarwal, and Sashwati Roy, all of Indiana University, and Peter Duda of the University of Chicago.
