Motorola packs more power into chips

Author: JT Smith

Kelly mcNeill writes "Motorola scientists say they have designed a procedure for shrinking chips from today's 157 nanometer width to less than 100 nanometers wide, enabling more circuitry to be added to conventional-size microchips. The announcement comes as chipmakers search for ways to extend the lifespan of photolithography, the technology used to create microchips, which is expected to reach its limit by the next decade."
