Intel First to Demonstrate Working 45nm Chips

| Posted: Jan 28, 2006 1:13 am

Intel have reached a new milestone just recently it seems, announcing what are believed to be the first fully functional SRAM (Static Random Access Memory) chips using 45nm process technology, its next- generation, high-volume semiconductor manufacturing process.

 

If all goes according to plan, full scale production of 300mm wafers with 45nm technology should be active at some stage next year.

 

For more details of the several benefits to come from this achievement, head over to their press room.

 


"Being first to high volume with 65nm process technology and the first with a working 45nm chip highlights Intel's leadership position in chip technology and manufacturing," said Bill Holt, vice president, general manger, Intel Technology and Manufacturing Group. "Intel has a long history of translating technology leaps into tangible benefits that people appreciate. Our 45nm technology will provide the foundation for delivering PCs with improved performance-per- watt that will enhance the user experience."

 

Intel's 45nm process technology will allow chips with more than five times less leakage power than those made today. This will improve battery life for mobile devices and increase opportunities for building smaller, more powerful platforms.
