SRISA (Scientific Research Institute for System Analysis) has announced it will build a mini fabrication plant for microcircuit technology using a 0.35 micron process, at Russian trade show SEMI in Zelenograd. The mini-factory will begin work early in 2000. The equipment has been supplied by US outfit Applied Materials, the number one worldwide supplier of fab kit. Applied Materials officials are confident that its Russian customers will create good yields. The mini-fab is financed by several interested investors. Elbrus, which has the edge on supercomputer and 64-bit x86-like technology, is expected to sample parts using the fabrication plant. As reported here earlier, Elbrus, which has designs dubbed the Merced Killer, got financing from the Moscow government this year. Boris Babaian, CEO of Elbrus, Under the items of information from the official persons of the company, will use the mini-fab to test the designs. In fact, Elbrus' design may actually be produced before Intel's. Beware, Chipzilla, the gauntlet is down. ® Andrei Fatkullin is a journalist on Russian wire Computerra Weekly
