Advanced Micro Devices and IBM on Tuesday detailed their proceedings in bringing new, advanced semiconductor process technologies and materials to the 65nm fabrication process. According to the companies, the new manufacturing technology allows to increase clock-speeds while maintaining

The companies announced that they have successfully combined embedded Silicon Germanium (e-SiGe) with Dual Stress Liner (DSL) and Stress Memorization technology (SMT) on Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) wafers, resulting in a 40% increase in transistor performance compared to similar chips produced without stress technology, while controlling power consumption and heat dissipation.

The new process technologies reduce interconnect delay through the use of lower dielectric constant (lower-K) insulators, which can improve overall product performance and lower power consumption. In addition, the new technologies have shown ability to be manufactured at the 65nm generation and scaleable for use in future generations, the companies said.

“At IBM, we strongly believe that our unique joint development partnership with AMD at East Fishkill, N.Y. is key to overcoming power and heat challenges as the industry reaches near atomic scales,” said Gary Patton, vice president, technology development at IBM's Semiconductor Research and Development Center. “The successful integration of leadership technologies from IBM, AMD and our partners at 65nm demonstrates the strength of our collaborative innovation model.”

Additional details about third generation strain technology innovations from AMD and IBM will be disclosed at the 2005 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting, December 5-7, 2005 in Washington, D.C. This technology was developed as part of the AMD and IBM joint development alliance at AMD’s fabrication facilities in Dresden, Germany, and at the IBM Semiconductor Research and Development Center in East Fishkill, N.Y.
