The general tendency for the development of the element base of digital circuitry, starting with the appearance of the first integrated circuits in the early 60s to the present, is a continuous increase in the number of logic elements (LEs) placed on the chip, while reducing the unit cost of one element. An increase in the number of LEs continuously opens up the possibility of creating increasingly complex digital devices placed on a single chip. The main (far from complete) positive results of this trend include: Continue reading
So, we have established that the task of cooling the processor should be solved regardless of how the other elements are cooled. And the ways to solve it have long been known, let me just briefly dwell on some points.
To cool the processor, it is necessary and in most cases it is enough to install a radiator on the processor, and a fan on the radiator. Continue reading
Until now, we have considered solutions that save money when organizing the LAN of a small office due to some compromises with standards. There is another way of organizing the office cable system, not designed to save money by the methods discussed above, but rather, assuming some of their redundancy at the initial stage, but giving savings later. Continue reading
