TSMC gears up for 16nm FinFET+ process

Production in early 2015

TSMC is planning to add two more 16nm processes to its portfolio in an apparent effort to compete with 14nm nodes from Intel and Samsung.

TSMC's 16nm FinFET process has been on company roadmaps for a while and it should be ready for production by the end of 2014. However, a new FinFET+ process is expected to launch in early 2015, with trial production in late 2014. That is not all - an even more advanced 16nm FinFET process is coming in late 2015 or 2016.

Digitimes says the advanced 16nm process is named 16nm FinFET Turbo and it is an attractive option for customers who are planning to migrate from 20nm.
