Motorola is selling off its smart card chip business to a Silicon valley startup, Atmel. The company would not disclose how much the division was worth. A spokesman told PC Week: "This is not one of our core areas of business any more." Motorola has played a key role in smart card chip development since the 1980s when it created single-chip microcontrollers for banking, commerce and public transportation applications. Motorola has also announced it has broken the record for the smallest microchip, at 0.1 microns. The previous best was 0.15 microns. With more and smaller features on a chip, the technology will produce higher performance chips at a lower price.
