The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is leading the future in computer chip technology with the planned use of 450 millimeter silicon wafers for the development and research at the new building site of NanoFab Xtension.
The new building will be used to produce computer chips on a larger wafer, compared to the current 300 millimeter wafer, with the overall goal to make chips that will operate faster, have more functionality and conserve power.
"What you get is not only today's technology but tomorrow's technology and the technology of the future all in one place, which is very unique and very exciting," said Stephen Janack, the vice president for marketing and communications at CNSE.
