Samsung: Full speed ahead for 10nm, EUV deploys at the 7nm node

Samsung: Full speed ahead for 10nm, EUV deploys at the 7nm node For the past 12 months, Samsung’s foundry division has occupied a leadership position at the 14nm node.The image above shows why companies continue to claw for EUV lithography, despite its problems, power costs, and vastly increased cooling requirements.

How Intel lost the mobile market, part 2: the rise and neglect of Atom

How Intel lost the mobile market, part 2: the rise and neglect of Atom The common explanation for why Intel lost the mobile market is that its x86 mobile processors either drew too much power, or weren’t powerful enough compared with their ARM counterparts.Despite being initially starved for resources, 32nm Atom chips were competitive in the midrange mobile market.

TSMC announces plans for $16 billion foundry to push the envelope on 5nm, 3nm process nodes

TSMC announces plans for $16 billion foundry to push the envelope on 5nm, 3nm process nodes 7 billion foundry facility focused on the upcoming 5nm and 3nm process nodes.Even once a facility is running some volume, it can take 9-12 months to bring the entire fabrication plant fully online.

Intel will finally finish Fab 42 in Arizona, bring new 7nm capacity online

Intel will finally finish Fab 42 in Arizona, bring new 7nm capacity online Several years ago, Intel announced that it wouldn’t finish its 14nm manufacturing plant, Fab 42.Now, Intel has announced that it will be bringing Fab 42 online, but not as a 14nm facility.

IBM Announces 5nm Breakthrough Using Silicon Nanosheets

IBM Announces 5nm Breakthrough Using Silicon Nanosheets The diagram below shows the progression from a traditional 2D transistor (left) to a FinFET structure (right), to a GAAFET (bottom).The structure of the IBM nanosheet design means that the fin, which formerly stuck “up” out of the transistor, is now effectively a silicon nanowire.

GlobalFoundries Announces Early 7nm Availability, Huge Gains Over 14nm FinFET

GlobalFoundries Announces Early 7nm Availability, Huge Gains Over 14nm FinFET Now, GlobalFoundries is making a serious push of its own with early 7nm technology availability and volume production currently planned for the back half of 2018.That’s the news from Saratoga today, where GF announced that its 7nm LP node (LP = Leading Performance) is ready for partners to begin planning their designs.

ASML Claims Major EUV Lithography Milestone

ASML Claims Major EUV Lithography Milestone Manufacturers like Intel, TSMC, GlobalFoundries, and Samsung have continued to advance 193nm lithography in the absence of a functional EUV alternative.Now, ASML is claiming to have solved one of the major problems keeping EUV lithography from release, though it’s doing so in extremely carefully worded language.
