Globafoundries announced the availability of the 7-nanometer technology FinFET 7LP
The company Globafoundries announced the availability of the 7-nanometer technology FinFET 7LP, optimized according to the criterion of performance. New technology designed for the production of processors for mobile devices, servers, and network infrastructure equipment. The development tools are already available. The first orders will be completed in the first half of 2018, and the deployment of serial production scheduled for the second half.
Thus, the manufacturer has confirmed the deadlines set out in the autumn of last year.
Assessment GlobalFoundries, the chip technology 7LP FinFET will be 40% or more to surpass the performance of circuits manufactured according to the norms of 14 nm. The density of the arrangement is increased more than twice.
Products of the new technology will be produced at Fab 8 in the United States. Interestingly, at the initial stage it is planned to use conventional lithography, and in mass production lithography in the hard ultraviolet range (EUV). Two EUV machines will be installed at the factory in the next half of the year.
