+ - Toshiba and NEC to Team Up on 32-nm Chips->

Submitted by

Tech.Luver writes "apanese chip makers Toshiba and NEC said on 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. ____________ Chip makers are racing to move to tinier circuit sizes to cut production cost per chip function and enable powerful electronics that run for hours without killing the battery. But the shift also forces changes in fundamental materials and processes and exposes chip makers to huge initial costs. ____________ Samsung, IBM, Chartered Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies, STMicroelectronics and Freescale Semiconductor have said they would work through 2010 to develop and produce 32-nanometer chips. A nanometer is a billionth of a meter. ____________ ( http://techluver.com/2007/11/27/toshiba-and-nec-to-team-up-on-32-nm-chips/ )"
