Inside an Intel 45-nanometer chip factory

RP news wires, Noria Corporation

Intel will launch its first 45-nanometer chips made with reinvented transistors that use a new Hafnium-based high-k metal gate recipe. Take a look inside Intel's 45nm factories where these chips get made. See the many layers or floors of the factory and the automated shuttles that take the wafers from one step to another to ultimately produce millions of Intel's 45nm chips. These buildings are some of the cleanest in the world and so large that 17 football fields can fit inside.
