7nm foundry market to heat up in 2018
poniedziałek, 19 czerwca 2017 10:02

IC foundries are gearing up for mass production of 7nm chips in 2018, as well as production for 7nm process technology using EUV, according to market observers. Major players in the 7nm foundry segment will be TSMC, Samsung, Globalfoundries and Intel. In the 10nm FinFET race, Samsung is partnering with Qualcomm to compete against TSMC, which has obtained 10nm chip orders from Apple and MediaTek, said the observers. Nevertheless, like 20nm, 10nm will be a short-lived node as 7nm will be the main battlefield technology, the observers believe.
