Aren't compensating for anything
of Taiwanese boffins claims to have successfully developed the world's first 16nm chip.
National Nano Device Laboratories said it managed to create the first
16nm chip, but don't expect to see the tech in real products anytime
Yang Fu-liang, the lab's chief, told AFT that the development could
lead to tiny cellphones and laptops, but did not reveal many details
about the process.
"Sixteen nanometres used to be considered the final frontier," said Yang.
Yang's colleagues at TSMC are still struggling to improve yields on
their 40nm process, so 16nm is probably a long way off, but it's still
quite an impressive feat.
