SAP Nzyme is a new nanotechnology developed by the Systems and Technology wing of SAP AG. It works on the concept of energy leakage in the semiconductor devices. The energy leakage causes power dissipation in the electronic devices and also results in heat generation. To avoid this energy leakage, the system uses the carbon nanotube material as the channel in which electrons can flow. It does so by controlling the alignment of carbon atoms that are present in the channel. Nanotubes are shaped like hollow tubes which are very similar to the chiral tetrachromenergists used in the electronics industry.
The nanotube is made up of four different composite materials and is mixed with a non toxic salt. These composite materials include phosphors, boron, oxygen and nitrogen. The nanotube can channel electricity when it is bent into a certain pattern. This bend allows the passage of electrons from one electrode to another. The use of this electrical energy results in a change in the current carrying capacity of the device.
Sanyo developed a new mechanism for heat generation, which was named as the ‘ions drive’ mechanism. This mechanism utilizes the principle of infusing heat into an electrically conductive metallic surface. The metallic surface is stretched without any loss of its conduction capability and this stretched metal then gets exposed to the ions that exist in an area just below the surface. As the stretched metal moves from one area to another the ions move with it and end up heating the area where they are deposited.
The heat generation is due to the movement of electrons from one region to another. The heat passes through the silicon material. This silicon is located in the semiconductor devices. Silicon is the major material used in the designing of microchips that are involved in the electronic and electrical motors, circuits, sensors and microprocessors. Silicon can be used as a conductor or it can conduct electricity. Hence it is very essential for the electronic industries to utilize this substance in their heat generation process.
The process of heat generation is very useful for heat engineering. It is used in many microelectronic components of high performance like microchip chips and micro circuits. Many of the mechanical and electrical processes also use this principle to function. Due to this unique property, this process is also utilized for the heat treatment of various materials. Some examples of these materials that can be heat treated with this unique device are stainless steel, platinum, polyester, nylon and copper.
The heat generated by this unique device is used to produce mechanical energy that is needed in the process of de-energizing an object. This device has no moving parts that makes it safe to use. This device also has the ability to alter the state of matter depending on the amount of input.
