    We were just looking at this yesterday in semiconductor physics - very cool stuff, and the next five years are going to be exceedingly interesting as we approach the tunneling limit and everything starts going quantum...

    "Penryn" :confused: Who names these things? Can I name the next one? How about "Murgurfkinfleegan" (sounds kinda like swearing in German :D )

    Sounds like welsh to me since I can't really remember much of my high school welsh I can't say what it means, other than I think there may be a place with the name.

    Quite why a japanese group (who's R&D people work out of silicon valley?) is using a welsh word for a name .. well I'd be interested to know :thumb:

    And yes, definite one-upmanship there "don't buy theres! we'll have a better one in 6-12 months!"

    Penryn is a town in cornwall, it's also a town in California, which I guess is more likely the origin. It's also the place name for about 1/3rd of welsh towns, villages, quarries, and rock types.

    The Welsh word is actually spellt Penrhyn which translates to promontory, i.e. a peace of land sticking out to sea.

    ahh :thumb:

    It's a new word to me and sounds odd as a town name (to me), but I suppose I have been to places with odder names.
