Scanners not ready for UltraViolet
TSMC has talking about using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography for its advanced 10nm process technology but it does not look like it will happen, however it might be ready for 7nm.
Promises an aggressive ramp-up
TSMC president and co-CEO Mark Liu has announced his outfit has begun volume shipment of chips based on its 16-nm FinFET manufacturing process.
Delayed by Apple
Samsung and TSMC have started production of the chip which is supposed to be under the bonnet of the iPhone 6s.
Looks like Apple sales are not that good
Chipmaker TSMC's second quarter profit growth slowed to 33 percent year-on-year as sales fell for the second consecutive period on weaker smartphone demand in China and other emerging markets.
Foundry plans to triple 16nm capacity in 2016
TSMC's 16nm FinFET process has barely gotten off the ground, but the foundry is already talking about 16nm FinFET Plus, which is due to launch by the end of the year.
We are well greased
TSMC has said that it is confident that it can beat Samsung Electronics in ramping up production on its 10nm lines.
Mass production in late 2016
TSMC is planning to create a 10nm pilot line at its 300mm wafer plant in Fab 12.
Needs of the many
Cirrus Logic has shifted its orders back to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) after a high provide move to Vanguard International Semiconductor (VIS).
