Sony & Toshiba To Develop 45nm Chip

Sony and Toshiba plan to each invest 10 billion yen ($ 95 million) to jointly develop a microchip that will be smaller and more powerful than any now available. The planned next-generation semiconductor will have 45-nanometre circuitry — even narrower than the circuitry planned for “cell”, a 65-nanometre microprocessor being developed by the two companies and IBM. Toshiba and Sony target completion of a 45-nanometre system LSI (large-scale integrated) — a high-end microchip that combines multiple functions on one piece of silicon to power everything from DVD recorders to game machines — by late 2005.
