"CHIPS: IBM claims SiGe speed records"
IBM Corp. is claiming its silicon-germainum chip technology earns top honors in both bits-per-second and clock-frequency metrics. The announcement is expected Tuesday (Feb.17) at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco. Silicon bests indium phosphide, according to IBM, and its proof is an experimental multiplexor communicating at speeds of up to 132 Gbits/s. The company will also report on a 60-GHz silicon-germanium transceiver for wireless networks.
