Silicon reinvented

June 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-6

nanotechnology QSi

Join us on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 7 p.m. to learn about a new generation of computing circuits that are tiny, fast and cool.


Quantum Silicon Inc. (QSi) is an Alberta-based company focused on ultra low power, high-speed computing. QSi will explore what buggy whips, vacuum tubes and photographic film have in common with today’s computing technology. Today’s technology remains based on the transistor invented in 1947 requiring vast amounts of energy, QSi enables over a 100x reduction in processing power while facilitating up to terahertz speeds providing a path to next-generation computing.

Why does that matter? Ordinary computer circuits pump enormous numbers of electrons with each cycle of the clock. Then all those electrons are dumped as heat. It is extremely expensive to get rid of all that heat. That has forced an end to the Moore’s Law path that has driven all aspects of the computing industry for the past half-century. So computers are not getting any faster. It takes a lot of energy to run them. That energy is largely wasted. QSi has shown that it doesn’t have to be that way.

How do we do it? The Quantum Silicon approach harnesses electrons in collections of silicon atoms to represent, transmit, and create information. Our process uses virtually no current. The result is a new generation of computing circuits that are tiny, fast, and cool.
