In the thirty or more years that I have been in the public address, or sound reinforcement business,the first major change I saw was from valve to germanium transistor amplifiers," observes Terry Baldwin.
The SBL13 SiGe bipolar device is a Silicon Germanium transistor added to an aluminum-based 0.
Alloys of germanium are already found in commercial chips, so germanium transistors could be easier to integrate into existing chip-manufacturing processes than transistors made from more exotic materials.
IBM breakthroughs include high-k, which enhances the transistor's function while allowing it to be shrunk beyond today's limits, dual-core and multicore processors, copper-on-chip wiring, silicon-on-insulator and silicon germanium transistors, strained silicon, and eFUSE, a technology that enables computer chips to automatically respond to changing conditions.
IBM is a recognized innovator in the chip industry, having been first with advances like more power-efficient copper wiring in place of aluminum, faster silicon-on-insulator (SOI) and silicon germanium transistors, and improved low-k dielectric insulation between chip wires.
