Here’s what the auto industry wants: Microprocessors that are tailormade for the automotive environment, that can withstand huge temperature swings and near-constant vibration and, most importantly, never ever fail. To make microprocessors that meet those requirements, experts say a rethink of the entire production process is order. And that’s exactly what is happening. “Until now, Read More..
Intel has redesigned the basic microprocessor, claiming a new three-dimensional transistor will boost performance and lower power consumption. The new transistors are particularly well suited for small handheld devices, theÂ California-based chipmaker said. Intel said its new 3-D Tri-Gate transistors will be implemented in its upcoming manufaturing process, which is called the 22nm node. The company Read More..
