The processors are manufactured using the company's 130 nm HiPerMOS silicon-on-insulator (SOI) copper interconnect process technology, which is designed for desirable performance and low power capability.
Compatible with the entire PowerPC family of microprocessors dating to 1991, the MPC7410 is the first of Motorola's microprocessors to be manufactured in the HiPerMOS 6 (HiP6) 0.18-micron copper fabrication process.
The new chip also uses Motorola's .15 micron copper HiPerMOS technology.
