Intel Makes an Agreement with ASML to Accelerate 450 mm Wafer Development

The past several days were marked by the Intel's announcement about the celebration of a contract with ASML company. Such step has been dictated by the company's intentions to invest into the development of 450 mm wafers and EUV technologies. In accordance with the preliminary estimates, the general investment rate will reach $4.1 billion. The major target of the cooperation is to decrease the term of lithography equipment commissioning by two years, and stimulate the development of technologies targeted at 450 mm wafers. The implementation of the predesigned plans will allow the manufacturers of semiconductor components to receive a range of benefits, among which is the cut of expenses.



With the purpose to facilitate in the solution of this technological problem, Intel will take part in a dedicated program. This program includes financial backup of scientific and research projects, as well as, equity investing campaigns in ASML.


The initial stage of this program …

Meet the Most High-Powered Server GPUs from AMD

AMD has just released two new graphic processing units intended for solid server systems: AMD FirePro S7000 and S9000 models. According to the claimed specifications, both models are the most high-powered server GPUs currently available in the market. Their major destination is the application in different fields, including multimedia content editing and CAD. S7000 and S9000 can be used as graphics solutions in the complement of large data-centers and within the infrastructure of virtual desktops.



Both units are developed on an advanced Graphics Core Next architecture and support progressive brand technologies, like ZeroCore Power and PowerTune. Those technologies are called to reduce power consumption by almost 95% in idle mode. In addition, those GPUs support virtualization technologies designed by Microsoft, VMware, and some other developers. Both products are equipped with passive cooling system. High level of operating speed makes the models applicable in the most …

ASMedia to Introduce USB 3.5 Controllers in 2014

ASMedia, an auspicious designer of PCIe bridges, USB 3.0 controllers and Switch IC items, announces the development of a new USB 3.5 controller. According to the preliminary information, this controller is going to support 10 Gb/sec data transfer speed, which is nearly twice higher than current USB 3.0. Earlier the launch of an advanced component was scheduled for late 2014, however, now the company is intended to officially introduce it early next year.



The decision to elaborate a speedier controller is explained by ASMedia in two ways. Firstly, the company is currently receiving more orders from motherboard manufacturers for the development of USB 3.0 hubs, due to the recent launch of Intel Haswell CPUs. Nonetheless, an enforcement of platform will sooner or later require an enforcement of various facilities, including connectivity and data transfer.


Secondly, USB 3.5 is called to rival Thunderbolt interface. It should be stressed that both interfaces feature analogous …
