The µm process is the level of semiconductor process technology that was reached in 1977[1][2] by the leading semiconductor companies such as Intel.

Products featuring 3 µm manufacturing process[edit]

  • Intel 8085 CPU launched in 1977 was manufactured using 3.2 µm process.[3]
  • Intel 8086 CPU launched in 1978 was manufactured using 3.2 µm process.[4]
  • Intel 8088 CPU launched in 1979 was manufactured using 3.2 µm process.[5]
  • The original ARM microprocessor was launched in 1985 and manufactured on a 3µm process. [6]
