A thin layer of electrically insulating material, usually silicon
dioxide with some nitrogen mixed in, coats the channel and is itself topped by a block of metal-enriched silicon
called the gate, which supplies the current-controlling electric field.
is deposited on top of a substrate with atoms spaced farther apart, the atoms in silicon
stretch to line up with the atoms beneath, stretching - or "straining" - the silicon
This press release may contain forward-looking statements based on Silicon
Laboratories' current expectations.
Nonetheless, the semiconductor industry now wants to divorce silicon
from its loyal oxide.
Laboratories will host a conference call discussing the transaction at 7:30 a.
At the same time, manufacturing technology has advanced to the point where a typical silicon
chip costs just pennies to produce.
Through our relationship with Samsung, we are extending our market leading modem technology into the established fax market," said Dave Bresemann, vice president of Silicon
Now those scientists, working at the University of California, San Diego, have etched porous silicon
so finely that the wafers reflect light in a rainbow of colors.

He and his colleagues first grow the calcium-silicon
compound on silicon
and then create a thin film of siloxene by replacing the calcium with hydroxyl groups.
Marques joined Silicon
Laboratories in 1999 and was one of the first members of the Aero transceiver development team.
Scientists make silicon
porous by placing it in acid and passing a low current across it.
Genesis, a leader in process and technology for engineered substrates, announced today that it is making test samples available to solar cell manufacturers and material suppliers which utilize its proprietary silicon
film formation technology.
and represents a turning point in [30 years of] silicon
Ultimately, solutions that accomplish the application requirements at the lowest system cost will drive the next wave of electronics in automobiles," said Derrell Coker, vice president of Silicon
