IBM sets new standard for custom chip designs

6/10/2002 - BM today announced the industry's most advanced custom chip capability. The new IBM application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) offering, called Cu-08, supports circuits as small as 90 nanometers (a nanometer is a billionth of a meter), as well as innovative materials and design techniques to drive power consumption down by as much as 40 percent while pushing performance up as much as 20 percent. "IBM understands that customers don't just want new technology; they want a supplier with the experience and resources to help them use it," said Michel Mayer, general manager, IBM Microelectronics Division. "It's going to take more than just smaller geometries. It's going to take technologies like copper and low-k; design innovations like embedded DRAM and low-power transistors; and knowledge of the customer's business and applications to best apply them all."
