Hitachi develops smallest IC chip

By Derek Sooman on
Hitachi has developed the world`s smallest integrated circuit chip, which measures 0.0059 inch by 0.0059 inch. The wireless IC chip, even with an antenna attached, will still be thinner than copy machine paper. The chip is due to be revealed at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference, now being held in San Francisco. Future applications include bank notes, securities papers and official certificates to prevent forgeries.
