TSMC: the 5nm process is progressing smoothly and will conquer the 3nm process in the future

By  Derrick May 2020-02-04 1072 29

Recently, TSMC released its results for the fourth quarter of 2019. The 7nm process, which took the lead in mass production in 2018, has generated $9.3 billion in revenue for TSMC, according to financial data. At present, TSMC is actively mass-producing 5nm chips, and it is expected that 5nm chips will be mass-produced in the first half of 2020.

At present, Apple and Huawei are both important customers of TSMC. The brand-new Apple chips and flagship Kirin chips will all adopt the more advanced TSMC 5nm technology. It follows news that the Apple A14 chip will use TSMC's latest 5nm process, while Apple's orders will account for 2/3 of TSMC's capacity, a move that may boost TSMC's revenue growth. It is understood that the 5nm process can increase the density of the transistor by 80% and the speed by 20%.

The capacity of 5nm chips may contribute 10 per cent of TSMC's revenue by 2020. However, in addition to the 5nm chip, TSMC has not stopped the pace of research and development. It is reported that TSMC is developing a new 3nm chip, and this more advanced process is expected to achieve initial production in 2022. It can be seen that in the next few years, 7nm chips and 5nm chips will be the mainstream.
