An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Faraday announces MiniIO pads in two sizes from Faraday Technology, which we summarised at the time by saying "Faraday Technology has announced the availability of its MiniIO IO pads at 55nm and 65nm. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Atmel introduces ASIC custom architecture from Atmel Corporation: "Atmel Corporation announced a custom architecture for 90nm SiliconCity ASIC development, providing up to 350K gates/mm2, offering customers gate densities in the range of a standard cell ASIC. ".

In May 2009, we covered the news from Vivante Corporation - take a look at Vivante - latest company news which says: "12 May 2009 - Vivante has announced that its silicon proven GPU IP has been selected by Chipsbank Microelectronics.".

Take a look also at the news release from austriamicrosystems, H18 CMOS process technology ready for distribution, as well as Array platform speeds SoC development from Toshiba Electronics Europe, and Cores to power femtocell basestations from MIPS Technologies.
