  • Tiny Transistors Fit on New Chip

Photonics Spectra
Oct 1998
Researchers at Texas Instruments in Dallas have developed transistors with a channel length of 0.07 µm -- so small that 400 million can fit on a single chip. The new technology could draw interest from some imaging board manufacturers, according to a spokeswoman for the company.
The transistors could lead to a high level of systems integration and could enable chips to exceed 1 GHz, the company said. Products based on these chips will weigh less, be smaller, consume less power and cause software to operate more quickly. The chips also are designed for analog and digital operation.
