"Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) has completed pilot production of a 0.15-micron processor for Transmeta, the microprocessor start-up that plans to create power-saving chips for portable devices."

"The company could begin producing the processor in volume almost immediately if Transmeta orders them, according to TSMC spokesman J.H. Tzeng."

"Volume production of the chip would use TSMC's recently built 0.15-micron technology foundry facilities. This technology, which TSMC began using in volume production in January, allows processors to achieve higher speeds in a smaller space for a lower cost, Tzang said."
