IBM Says New Advance Makes Chips More Energy-Efficient
The advance involves a manufacturing process that uses heat to create trillions of atomic-scale holes in a thin layer of material deposited on top of the conducting wires at different stages of chip making.
I.B.M. says the insulation technique can increase chip speed as much as 35 percent with a 15 percent reduction in energy consumption.
I.B.M. plans to share the new technology approach with its manufacturing and technology partners.
