600 nm process

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

The 600 nanometer process (600 nm process) is a level of semiconductor process technology that was reached in the 1994–1995 timeframe, by most leading semiconductor companies, like Intel and IBM.[1]

Products featuring 600 nm manufacturing process[edit]

  • Intel 80486DX4 CPU launched in 1994 was manufactured using this process.
  • IBM/Motorola PowerPC 601, the first PowerPC chip, was produced in 600 nm.
  • Intel Pentium (P54C) CPUs at 75 MHz, 90 MHz and 100 MHz were also manufactured using this process.
