Chip makers race to bring 90-nm chips to market
The 90-nanometer horses are off and running as chip makers race to be first to market with products built using next-generation process technology. Texas Instruments Inc. said Wednesday (Jan. 22) that it has delivered engineering samples of a wireless digital baseband IC to a leading customer, believed to be cell phone maker Nokia, crafted in TI's 90-nm process. The process delivers 4.8 million transistors, or 800,000 6-T SRAM bits, per square millimeter, and supports a 37-nm gate length.
