Japanese chipmakers Toshiba and NEC Electronics said Tuesday they would jointly develop 32-nanometer chips to better keep up with rivals.
The companies will decide in 2008 how and if they will jointly produce the chips, they said.
Chipmakers are racing to move to tinier circuit sizes to cut production costs per chip function and to enable powerful electronics that run for hours without killing the battery. But the shift also forces changes in fundamental materials and processes and exposes chipmakers to huge initial costs.
