At the Microprocessor Forum in San Jose, Calif. this week, VIA Technologies unveiled the VIA Eden-N processor, a tiny x86 processor in a nanoBGA
package measuring just 15 x 15mm -- roughly the size of a U.S. penny. VIA says the new chip, which is based on a streamlined version of its Nehemiah
processor core, is less than half the size of Intel's Pentium M processor.
