STMicro in beta with fast sys-chips

Apparently, it is rocket science

Sources a long way away from STMicroelectronics, formerly called SGS Thomsen, tell The Register it has started beta testing a family of superfast processors. Last year, STMicro said it was developing so-called "system on a chip" devices as part of a cunning plan in conjunction with IBM Microelectronics. STMicro, a European company formerly called SGS Thomsen, has access to fast process technology from its time when it was fabbing Cyrix chips, before Cyrix was acquired by National Semiconductor. The samples are already with prospective manufacturers. Last November, STMicro bought Adaptec's storage chip designers. ® Related Story IBM and STMicroelectronics team for single chip development
