Wi-Fi networks slow down when more people or devices are using them. The same thing happens with large systems. If too many people gather in one place, cell phone towers cannot handle the influx. As the number of connected devices grows exponentially, and the coming wave of artificial intelligence may further exacerbate the problem, major data traffic jams are on the horizon. However, scientists from the University of Florida have proposed a potential solution: using 3D chips.

Most wireless communications rely on “planar” processors, which means they're essentially flat, reports Gizmodo. Because they are two-dimensional, they can only process a limited range of frequencies at a time. But unlocking the manufacturing process that makes 3D chips could allow the hardware to handle multiple frequencies simultaneously. This could be a real revolution.

According to Ruzbeh Tabrizian, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Florida, whose team developed the new processors, the problem can be compared to traffic moving through a city.

A city's infrastructure can only handle a certain level of traffic, and if you keep increasing the number of cars, you have problems. We are starting to reach the maximum amount of data we can move efficiently. The planar structure of processors is no longer practical as it limits us to a very limited frequency range.

—Tabrizian said in a press release.

The study describes a new approach that uses semiconductor technology to house multiple processors built for different frequencies on a single chip. This has several advantages. First of all, it improves performance while reducing the footprint of chips. Planar chips can only get bigger by making them wider, but the ability to create chips that increase their capacity in three dimensions instead of two means the technology is much easier to scale.
