NEC has shown off the technology for 0.10 micron processors it plans to have in production by the start of 2003. The chips will be used in next gen consumer electronics devices, mobile phones, and Net servers.

NEC has teamed up with the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company to jointly set the processor design rules, high-speed and standard transistor characteristics.

Reuters quotes Osamu Kudo, an NEC general manager for device development, at a press conference saying: "If we can have it ready in the first quarter of 2003, I think we'll be in the top group globally." ®
