TSMC wants to start 2015 with exploration 10nm-process




TSMC wants began in late 2015 to explore the possibility of producing. ARM processors on 10nm At present, the manufacturer is at 20nm. The production of 10nm processors will thus probably start in a few years.

The 10nm-process TSMC collaborates with ARM to seek out the best physical design for socs says the chip manufacturer. The FinFET processors will be based on the 64-bit micro architectures Cortex A57 and Cortex A53 ARM, which are already in use, for example, the Snapdragon 410 soc Qualcomm in several recent smartphones and the upcoming socs to include Qualcomm and MediaTek.

Currently produces at 28nm and 20nm TSMC socs; The latter process uses the example of the Apple A8-soc from the iPhone 6 In the foreseeable future wants it over to 16nm as an intermediate step to the 10nm-process. ExtremeTech notes that the first socs likely to appear at the beginning. development beginning in 2015 on 10nm in 2017 or 2018
