TSMC has been driving process technology to advanced 90-, 65- and 45-nanometre as next-generation electronics devices such as cell phones and game consoles require more powerful processors.

The smaller circuitry allows the design of more powerful chips for more complex devices, and the squeezing of more circuits onto a single chip also increases chip yield per wafer, boosting efficiency.
