TSMC launched mass production of A13 and Kirin 985 chips using 7-nm+technology
Taiwan semiconductor manufacturer TSMC announced the launch of mass production of single-chip systems for the process of 7-nm+. It is worth noting that the vendor for the first time produces chips by lithography in the hard ultraviolet range (EUV), thus making another step to compete with Intel and Samsung.
TSMC continues to cooperate with Chinese Huawei, launching the production of new single-chip systems Kirin 985, which will be the basis of the smartphone series Mate 30 Chinese technology giant. The same process is used in the manufacture of Apple A13 chips, which are expected to be used in the iPhone 2019.
Apart from informing about the start of mass production of the new chips, the company TSMC spoke about their plans for the future. In particular, it became known about the launch of trial production of 5-nanometer products using EUV technology. If the manufacturer's plans are not violated, the mass production of 5-nanometer chips will be launched in the first quarter of next year, and they will be available on the market closer to the middle of 2020.
The company's new plant, located in the southern science and technology Park in Taiwan, is receiving new installations regarding the production process. At the same time, another TSMC plant begins work on the preparation of a 3-nanometer process. A 6-nm transition process is also under development, which is likely to be an update to the current 7-nanometer technology.
