    Pure copper breakthrough means faster chips

    A MAJOR JAPANESE combine has created a process to refine copper that will result in faster semiconductors.
    Mitsubishi Materials, according to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, claims it can now create copper from ore that is 99.9999999% pure.

    It's called 7N copper after the seven nines following the decimal point. Current copper is 4N.

    The newspaper said that Mitsubishi will be able to make 10 tons of this highly purified form of copper every month.

    It claims that semiconductor manufacturers will use the 7N copper to slim the interconnects on CPUs and other semiconductor devices down to 65 nanometers. µ
