AMD prepares for 45 nanometre processors in 2008

By
AMD has outlined plans for a variety of new techniques which the second-placed chip maker will use on 45 nanometre technology-based processors in 2008.


Both AMD and IBM, who are collaborating on microprocessor design, presented papers this week at the International Electron Device Meeting outlining how they plan to use immersion lithography, ultra-low-K interconnect dielectrics and multiple enhanced transistor strain techniques to simplify the production of 45 nanometre processors. (No, we hadn't heard of transistor stain techniques before either.)

In grossly oversimplified terms, immersion lithography makes it easier to etch wafers filled with multiple chips by using a special transparent liquid between the wafer itself and the lithography system. "Immersion lithography will allow us to deliver enhanced microprocessor design definition and manufacturing consistency," AMD vice president of logic technology development Nick Kepler said.

AMD arch-rival and market leader Intel demonstrated 45 nanometre process technology in January, and has three fabrication plants which can use the process. AMD and IBM have a joint development agreement which runs until 2011.

LAYER 1 ENCRIPTION A KEY TO CYBER-SECURITY SOLUTION

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).

Get the full details on Layer-1 encryption solutions straight from PacketLight’s optical networks experts.

This white paper titled, “When 1% of the Light Equals 100% of the Information” is a must read for anyone within the fiber optics, cybersecurity or related industry sectors.
