IEDM preview: Looking past planar CMOS
While the world's major chip makers use the 50th International Electron Devices Meeting to detail their 65- and 45-nanometer processes, the bulk of papers at this year's IEDM will look ahead to futuristic devices that go beyond planar CMOS. Magnetic RAM, carbon nanotubes and single-electron transistors all will be on the agenda Dec. 13-15 in San Francisco.
Among the companies presenting their 65-nm platforms are IBM, Intel and Texas Instruments. The Crolles, France-based team of Freescale Semiconductor, Philips and STMicroelectronics will go a step further down the road map, describing a 45-nm technology.
