Future Tech: Scenes From Research@Intel Day

CRN Staff

Intel may be tight-lipped about near-term product launches, but the chip giant is always happy to show off its latest silicon wafers and the steady drumbeat of Moore's Law. Even as Intel ramps its 45nm logic process, it's looking ahead to the initial production of 32nm chips scheduled for 2009. The 32nm process continues Moore's Law by doubling transistor density compared to that at 45nm, as measured by SRAM cell size, and also adds immersion lithography to the fabrication process for the first time at Intel. At the Research@Intel demo of 32nm process technology, Intel had a functional 291 Mbit SRAM wafer on hand.
