Texas, one of world's largest maker of mobile phone chips said todaythat they are having plans to move to the 65nm production process. The move is planned to occur next year, and will shrink current designs by half while also boosting performance.
Dallas-based TI said it would produce samples of a wireless chip built on a 65 nanometer process, a reference to the width of features etched on a chip, in the first quarter of 2005.

The company said the new 65 nanometer process would reduce the size of equivalent designs on the 90 nanometer process by half while increasing transistor performance by 40 percent.

Full production on the new process, TI said, is expected in late 2005.

Separately, TI took the wraps off of its third-generation chipset for Wi-Fi wireless Internet access in phones and personal digital assistants. TI said the package supports the most common Wi-Fi standards, and is expected to be in production by mid-year
