45nm Wafer

45nm SRAM
Intel demonstrates a working 45 nanometer SRAM chip

Intel recently began shipping its 65 nanometer Core Solo and Core Duo processors and is quickly ramping up production. While other chip manufacturers are still working to get 65nm processors out the door, Intel's D1D facility in Oregon is already working on 45nm technology.

Intel has announced what it believes to be the first working sample of a 45nm Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) chip. The SRAM chip is packed with one billion transistors and is simply a demonstration of Intel's production capabilities.

Full production of 45nm chips using 300mm wafers are scheduled to start in 2007 according to Intel representatives. Intel also states that 45nm processors will have power leakage levels five times lower than processors that are currently shipping. This move will further increase battery life on mobile platforms and plays right into Intel's newfound vigor for efficiency:

Intel has a long history of translating technology leaps into tangible benefits that people appreciate. Our 45nm technology will provide the foundation for delivering PCs with improved performance–per– watt that will enhance the user experience.

Intel's $3 billion Fab 32 in Chandler, Arizona and its $3.5 billion Fab 28 in Qiryat Gat, Israel will be the first facilities capable of handling 45nm production. Fab 32 will be ready for 45nm production in the second half of 2007 while Fab 28 will be 45nm capable in the second half of 2008.
