IBM's expertise in manufacturing copper chips
is the result of investments IBM made in copper chip
research beginning in the mid-1980s.
IBM micrelectronics division general manager Mr Mike Attardo, said: "Like our copper chips
, SOI will accelerate the industry's constant drive to create smaller, more powerful, less expensive electronic goods.
The new card breaks the 400MHz speed barrier using copper chip
We are very excited that Toshiba is using our CVD low k dielectric films to manufacture their latest copper chip
designs," said Dr.
IBM Corp hopes to capitalize on the continued momentum in the mainframe MIPS market by offering a new G6 series of high-end 9672 mainframes from May 28, the first Big Blue systems to use its CMOS-7S copper chip
No one is sure what these processors are -- various rumors peg them as 400-MHz chips using the same Northstar design in current high-end AS/400s, others speculate that IBM may be able to get a 550-MHz Pulsar copper chip
out the door.
Nasdaq:AMAT) announces Reflexion(R) LK, the industry's only low down force, high throughput CMP (chemical mechanical polishing) system that enables chipmakers to planarize a wide range of low k and ultra-low k dielectric materials for manufacturing faster 65nm and below copper chip
introduces its 300mm SlimCell(TM) electrochemical plating (ECP) system that overcomes the limitations of existing plating technology to deliver a cost-effective, production-worthy tool for current generation manufacturing and groundbreaking capability for 65nm and beyond copper chip
The results shows that thin barrier films, key components for advanced copper chip
wiring, will meet the electrical and functional demands defined for the end of the International Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which extends to 2016.
IBM expects its unparalleled semiconductor and materials research, which has delivered such breakthroughs as copper chips
, silicon germanium and quantum computing research, to continue to advance its capabilities in systems for years to come.
Smaller, denser, faster and cooler than their aluminum counterparts, copper chips
are also more reliable and less expensive to manufacture.
Intel had planned to come out with copper chips
For example, at the time, copper chips
were stirred into ointments for wound disinfection.
When IBM introduced copper chips
in volume production in 1998, for example, it soon after began making the new chips for Apple Computer.
It says the chips have been used for printer controllers, storage and communications devices, as well G3 copper chips
for Apple Computer Inc and for its own RS/6000 servers.
