IBM And HP Tie Nanotechnology To Chipmaking

A pair of tech giants are bringing what once was science fiction into real life. They're taking nanotech to computer chips.

IBM (IBM) and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) are both unveiling ways of using nanotechnology in the chipmaking process this week. The advances point to the key role that nanotech likely will play in future chips.

On Thursday, IBM plans to announce what it, and analysts, call a major breakthrough in chip technology. For the first time, IBM will use nanotechnology in its chipmaking process. It will bake a new material, which it won't identify, onto its chips that creates tiny vacuum pockets in silicon chips. These pockets will better insulate chips, cooling them and helping them run faster.
