The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), which is a trade body for chip firms, has revised its roadmap and shown every sign of playing follow my leader. The organisation, which exists to lobby governments and promote its membership, said yesterday that .15 micron process has been "eliminated, shortening the time needed to arrive at .13 micron in 2001." This echoes strangely with an Intel presentation we reported earlier this year, in which the chip giant said .18 micron was "really" .13 micron. (Stories: Intel confuses world+dog over .18 micron and slides, Why Intel's .18 micron is really .13 micron) George Scalise, president of the SIA, did little to clarify the position yesterday. He said: "This is the successful start of the international effort to produce a global roadmap, which will culminate in the 1999 Edition of the Roadmap." There is more information on these "roadmaps" here. ® * And the SIA continued to say the chip market is recovering, with sales in March up seven per cent to $11.6 billion, compared with March last year.
