    Intel next-gen transistor speeds closer

    June 11, 2003

    Intel says that its Tri-Gate transistor, a futuristic transistor that will let electricity flow more freely inside chips, is moving closer to reality.
    The Tri-Gate transistor, one of the tools that may let Intel continue to follow Moore's Law in the second half of the decade, has been placed on the "pathfinder" development path at Intel, said Ken David, co-director of components research in the Technology Manufacturing Group at Intel. That means that it is one of a select few design alternatives that will get incorporated into chips by 2007.

    "We've moved beyond the research stage and are in the development stage," David said. "Within a year or two we will narrow to a single approach and go with that."

    The company presented a paper this week on the transistor, along with others on breakthroughs in incorporating radios onto chips, at the Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Symposium in Kyoto, Japan.



    can anyone tell me what this means?

    It means there is a new transistor being developed? I dont know what do you need clarificationg on?

    Check out this site for info on transistors

    Moores law pretty much states that technolodgy will be half the size and double in power ever 10 years i think.. Corrections? :shoot3:

    Moore's Law states that transister counts double every 18 months. This also translates into speed increases and is often mis-quoted as the definition.
