For more than 45 years in the semiconductor business, Intel has always been at least one process node ahead. Node size reductions are generally a 1/3 of reduction from the linear dimension, resulting in approximately a 50% reduction in the area and therefore, a doubling of the units produced on the same cost. Intel Corporation, an American multinational corporation and technology company, is the world’s second largest and highest valued semiconductor chip makers.
