4 billion transistor chip has one of the highest transistor counts of any chip ever produced.
Fujitsu achieved high frequency, high output, and high amplification in the amplifiers by developing "dual-side heat-dissipation" technology, in which heat is dissipated through both sides of the transistor chip, which is the source of the amplifier's heat output.
The first member of the SiByte family, the Broadcom BCM 1250, features two MIPS64 cores that scale from 600 MHz to 1GHz, up to 128Gbps bus bandwidth, a high-speed memory subsystem that supports up to peak 50Gbps memory bandwidth, and up to 30Gbps total I/O bandwidth tightly integrated onto a 60 million transistor chip.
The 23 million transistor chip runs at least 120MHz and features a 256- bit four pipe pixel rendering engine.
In order to achieve high efficiency, the amplifier must have high gain - in other words, the performance of the transistor chip must be improved.
A Bell Labs research team may have extended the life of silicon- based transistor chip designs by removing one of the barriers to further shrinking the width of a transistor.
Conventionally, heat was dissipated through the use of what is known as the "face-up structure" (Figure 1), in which a high power transistor chip would be connected directly dice-bonded to the package and the heat would escape through the chip.
For a recent 10 million transistor chip, Vampire RCX completed a detailed parasitic extraction of the entire chip in less than 12 hours.
The new devices are NPN and PNP small-signal bipolar transistors with the resistor bias circuitry integrated into the transistor chip.
The 125M transistor chip integrates 32 multi-threaded packet processors, all packet buffer memory, 4 megabits of scratch pad memory, all instruction RAM and a 1Kx72-bit general purpose ternary CAM.
