10 IBM Breakthroughs in 10 Years -- Beginning with the use of copper for chip wiring, IBM has announced 10 semiconductor innovations over the course of 10 years that have enabled computers and many other kinds of electronic devices to become smaller, less expensive, more powerful, and more energy efficient. IBM today announced it has harnessed the natural tendency of materials to form patterns to create a vacuum between the miles of wires inside chips. This provides better insulation speeding performance and reducing power consumption.
