VLSI Technology Inc says it has delivered a 0.6-micron, three-level-metal chip, with complexity of some 5m transistors and measuring 0.6 by 0.6 to Compagnie des Machines Bull SA’s Bull System Platform Operations. Initial discussions of a full-custom, 0.6-micron microprocessor began in mid-1990. High-performance gate array libraries in the technology will be available in first quarter 1993, with cell-based libraries expected in the second quarter next year, for 5V and 3V.
