Most existing products are built using planar transistors, invented in 1959 they are low-cost, efficient transistors. But, chip makers are now looking at other transistor design methods to shrink their die below 20nm, TMSC seems to heart the FinFET design because of their "fish-fin" design which reduces the size of working transistors.

TMSC will show off high performance 22nm and 20nm tech that features FinFET transistors at IEEE's International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) which is happening on 6 - 8 December of this year in San Fransisco.

Intel to purchase McAfee at $48 per share

Shane McGlaun | Thu, Aug 19 2010 11:00 AM CDT
Intel and McAfee are two companies that most are familiar with. Intel is the largest maker of processors in the world and McAfee is one of the largest PC security companies around with antivirus software and more. Intel has announced that it plans to purchase McAfee at $48 per share in cash. The value of the deal is about $7.68 billion.

The purchase will allow Intel to offer a combination of software and hardware that will be able to better protect customers when they go online. Intel claims that the purchase will also improve its mobile wireless strategy. Presumably, that means more security for mobile devices like MIDs and smartphones as Trojans and other attacks become more common on these devices.
