Nanoelectronics in China

Intel and China were set today to announce plans to build the company's first 'fab' plant in China. Estimated to cost some $2.5 billion, the new plant will likely produce 90 nanometer feature chips with more sophisticated nanoscale electronics made elsewhere.


  1. I am surprised that they did not try to jump straight to 45nm as their nanotech efforts seem to be intended to put them ten years ahead of us.

  2. Intel, for nat'l security reasons, was reluctant to put the latest generation of chip fab technology in China. See the piece in today's NYT Business section (March 27, 2007)
