IBM Shrinks Memory Chips

Susan Hall

IBM and its partners have shrunk technology for static RAM (SRAM) memory cells to 22 nanometers, reports The memory chips temporarily store data before it is processed.


Making the chips smaller could cut power consumption and increase the speed of processors used in PCs, servers and other devices. The smaller size also could allow processors to have more features, such as 3-D graphics or animation capabilities, according to InfoWorld. IBM is working toward creating an entire CPU at 22 nanometers by 2011.


Also taking part in the research were AMD, Freescale, STMicroelectronics, Toshiba and the University of Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in New York.
