A machine maker for the semiconductor industry says it has found a unique way to quadruple the performance of today's microprocessor chips, an advance that could speed up many computer functions. The production improvement, to be announced today by Chatsworth-based Plasma & Materials Technologies Inc., is still in the test stage. But it tackles a growing challenge faced by chip makers as they cram more transistors onto each microprocessor: keeping its signals from getting crossed.
