Tesla is working with AMD to develop its own A.I. chip
czwartek, 21 września 2017 12:07

Tesla is getting closer to having its own chip for handling autonomous driving tasks in its cars. The carmaker has received back samples of the first implementation of its processor and is now running tests on it, said a source familiar with the matter. The effort to build its own chip is in line with Tesla's push to be vertically integrated and decrease reliance on other companies. But Tesla isn't completely going it alone in chip development, according to the source, and will build on top of AMD intellectual property. AMD shares spiked after CNBC reported that the company is working with Tesla.

Leading-edge paves the way for pure-play foundry growth
czwartek, 21 września 2017 10:06

In 2017, the 7% increase in the total pure-play foundry market is forecast to be almost entirely due to an 18% jump in <40nm feature size device sales. Although expected to represent 60% of total pure-play foundry sales in 2017, the ≥40nm pure-play IC foundry market is forecast to be up only $0.2 billion this year. In contrast, the 2017 leading-edge <40nm pure-play foundry market is expected to surge by a hefty $3.3 billion. Moreover most of the profits that are expected to be realized in the foundry market also forecast to come from the finer feature sizes as well.
