NetLogic Tapes-Out in TSMC's Advanced 28nm Process

NetLogic Microsystems has taped out its next-generation silicon in TSMC's advanced 28nm process, which offers up to 50 percent higher speed, 40 percent lower power and 100 percent higher gate density compared to the 40nm node, and up to 120 percent higher speed, 60 percent lower power and over 300 percent higher gate density compared to the 65nm node.

NetLogic Microsystems confirmed that it is migrating its next-generation multi-core processing, knowledge-based processing and 10/40/100 Gigabit PHY product lines to the advanced process node. These 28nm products are targeted at next-generation LTE (Long Term Evolution), IPv6, data center and security markets.

NetLogic Microsystems will be introducing multiple new products in 28nm throughout 2011.
