TSMC in hope to overtake competitors on the stage of the technological standards 5 nm
Speaking at the 17th annual conference for representatives of the supply chain, one of the senior managers of the company Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) reported the development of 5-nanometer technology.
On this task focused efforts of 6000 professionals research and development Department. This year the company plans to allocate to research and development by 15% more than in the past. In TSMC sure that the technological standards 5 nm will be able to overtake competitors in the face of Samsung and Intel. Trial 5-nanometer products, the manufacturer expects to produce in the first half of 2019. Moreover, several hundred researchers have already received preliminary development of a 3-nanometer technology.
Recall that last year, TSMC was able to prepare 10-nanometer production. The first small batch of 10-nanometer products to be shipped to customers in the current quarter. Also in the current quarter it is planned to start trial production according to the norms of 7 nm. In repetitive manufacturing, the norms of 7 nm TSMC hopes to learn in 2018.
