Apple's "A13" processor will use a 7-nanometer process for its production, but chip foundry TSMC is reportedly planning to use a different enhanced process to the current version it has come up with, named "N7 Pro." Read More »
10 Days Ago Following its work on a 7-nanometer chip production process, TSMC has revealed it has created a 6-nanometer version that has the potential to be ready for mass production in time to make Apple-designed A-series chips destined for the 2020 iPhones.
11 Days Ago In early October Patently Apple posted a report titled "TSMC Expected to be the Sole Supplier of Apple's 2019 A13 Processor based on 7nm with EUV beating out Samsung." Today we're learning that TSMC is entering 7nm EUV production this quarter for HiSilicon (Huawei) and Apple for their upcoming A13 processor for iPhones.
9 Days Ago TSMC this week unveiled its new 6 nm (CLN6FF, N6) manufacturing technology, which is set to deliver a considerably higher transistor density when compared to the company's 7 nm (CLN7FF, N7) fabrication process.
10 Days Ago We’re still a long way away from hearing anything official about Apple’s next system-on-a-chip. The A13 is likely to be unveiled in September, along with the new iPhones it will power.
9 Days Ago Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has announced its 6nm (N6) process, which provides a significant enhancement from its 7nm (N7) technology and offers customers a highly competitive performance-to-cost advantage as well as fast time-to-market with direct migration from N7-based designs.
10 Days Ago Samsung only just started manufacturing 7-nanometer chips recently, but it's already taken another big step in the race to keep up with Moore's Law. The company announced that it has started sampling 5-nanometer chips, and will start building them fo...
7 Days Ago TSMC will see its 7nm process utilization rate climb substantially in the second half of 2019, driven by a seasonal pick-up in demand for smartphones, as well as chip demand for HPC, IoT and automotive applications, according to company CEO CC Wei.
