Need to know about Hi-K? we’ve got the link
Mark Bohr on Intel\'s Hi-K dielectric for 45nm processes In one of the biggest advancements in fundamental transistor design, last year Intel Corporation revealed that it is using two dramatically new materials to build the insulating walls and switching gates of its 45 nanometer (nm) transistors. In this video, Mark Bohr, Intel Senior Fellow, delineates the importance of this technology and the scale of the accomplishment of Intel’s researchers. Hundreds of millions of these microscopic transistors – or switches – will be inside the next generation Intel® Core™ 2 Duo, Intel Core 2 Quad, and Xeon® families of multi-core processors. The company also said it has five early-version products up and running -- the first of fifteen 45nm processor products planned from Intel. The transistor feat allows the company to continue delivering record-breaking PC, laptop and server processor speeds, while reducing the amount of electrical leakage from transistors that can hamper chip and PC design, size, power consumption, noise and costs. It also ensures

What’s New at weSRCH:
weSRCH achieved 3.6 millon hits in January and 1.5 million page views. That’s 83 hits and 35 page downloads per minute
We’ve got a new compression algorithm that makes loading weSRCH.com much faster. This will especially help Asian countries were bandwidth is slow.
We’ve added a bunch of new applications to the site for members to use. In the My weSRCH section, where you must you must log-in first to access, there is:
· weSURVEY, which allows you to run your own private Internet Surveys.
o Easy to use, start by entering the Survey Name and Question.
o Fill out the answer options.
o Click on Preview and copy the link to this page.
o Then e-mail the link to anyone you want an answer from.
· myLibrary, which I’ve mentioned before allows you save links to your favorite papers.
These applications are all free. Additionally, there is a now an easy way to forward the papers you like to your colleagues: When you are looking at a paper you like, look for the link Send to Colleague just below the open book icon, click on it and it will open up a page for you to view. To check it out, I went to Mark Bohr’s paper on strained silicon from last year. Here is one to Ongoing History of Strain: Send to Colleague. It’s an excellent compilation of work they’ve done at Chipworks with lots of cool 45nm transistor SEMs and TEMs for you to see. In any case, I’m sure you’ll find these new applications to be valuable additions.
