Wireless-Internet-On-A-Chip

Tue, 07/31/2001 - 5:21am
Intel Corporation unveiled an experimental computer chip based on a new process technology that combines the core components of today's cellular phones and handheld computers. This integrated, "wireless-Internet-on-a-chip" technology could enable a new era of wireless Internet-access products with extensive battery life and greater processing power.

The new research chips feature logic (microprocessor), flash memory and analog communications circuits on a single piece of silicon built using a single manufacturing process. Each of these types of circuits is traditionally manufactured on separate process technologies in different factories.

Chips produced on the new process may be up to five times more powerful than those used in today's cell phones, capable of operating at speeds of up to 1 GHz and providing up to a month of battery life. Intel engineers expect that the technology will make possible a broad range of wireless devices and a host of futuristic applications that are only imagined today.
