The combination of Intel's cutting-edge 3-D tri-gate transistor
technology and architectural enhancements help make possible up to double the 3-D graphics and HD media processing performance compared with Intel's previous generation of chips.
Intel's 3-D Tri-Gate transistor
technology and 22nm manufacturing process provides significant benefits over legacy planar designs," said Jim Finnegan, senior vice president of engineering at Netronome.
Just as skyscrapers let urban planners optimize available space by building upward, Intel's 3-D Tri-Gate transistor
structure provides a way to manage density.
Achronix builds application targeted field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) built on Intel's 22nm, 3-D Tri-Gate transistor
are likely to play a critical role in Intel's future energy efficient performance capabilities because they offer considerably lower leakage and consume much less power than today's planar transistors.
May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced it is leveraging Intel Corporation's (Nasdaq: INTC) industry-leading, onshore foundry technology for the development of advanced high-performance digital integrated circuits (ICs) and system-on-chip (SoC) solutions using Intel's revolutionary 22 nanometer (nm) 3-D Tri-Gate transistor
Since originally announced last year, Intel researchers have successfully shrunk the size of the tri-gate transistor
(measured by the gate length) from 60 nanometers (nm) to 30 nm.
Intel's tri-gate transistor
employs a novel 3-D structure, like a raised, flat plateau with vertical sides, which allows electronic signals to be sent along the top of the transistor and along both vertical sidewalls as well.
, which have only been in development at Intel for the last decade, improve performance and energy efficiency in the company's Core line of chips, starting with Ivy Bridge processors released in 2012.
Intel will further accelerate the Ultrabook innovation in 2012 with third generation Intel Core processors, codenamed "Ivy Bridge," with the help of its 22nm 3D tri-gate transistors
The certified Cadence tools offer a complete and integrated flow for our customers, so they can implement and verify differentiated SoCs on Intel's 14nm design platform utilizing the second generation of tri-gate transistors
," said Ali Farhang, vice president, Design Enablement and Services, Intel Custom Foundry.
These SoCs are based on the Intel Silvermont microarchitecture, utilizing Intel s industry-leading 22nm process technology with 3-D Tri-Gate transistors
, which deliver significant improvements in computational HMI performance and energy efficiency.
