TSMC, a Taiwanese OEM that produces semiconductors and chipsets. Founded in the year 1987 the company currently holds the title for world’s largest dedicated independent semiconductor foundry. Corporations including Apple, Qualcomm and AMD are one of the few customers of TSMC.

The company has qualified a significant achievement in the field of chipset technology which is starting risk production of 5 nm chips. This step would allow the company to reduce the size of a given chipset by up to 45% in comparison to the current technology which is 7 nm. Furthermore, it will provide a performance boost of up to 15% in devices that incorporate the chipset. Even though the size of the foundation die has changed, the architecture of a particular chipset remains the same (eg: A73, Kryo 460). Accrediting to the size reduction, devices using the chipset manufactured using 5 nm process will be more power efficient. Therefore, proving for a longer battery backup on portable devices.

Except for the 5 nm process node, TSMC is also working on the 5 nm+ technology which will push a chipsets performance even further. However, the risk production of chipsets with this fabrication process will reportedly begin next year and they will be production ready by Q1 of 2021. For chipsets originating later this year, the company has 7 nm+ process ready. It should offer 20 % higher transistor density and 6-12% reduction in power consumption.

Notable companies that are lined up for the 7 nm+ based chipsets manufactured by TSMC include Qualcomm and Apple. TSMC being the sole chip supplier for Apple, at least until now, will manufacture SoCs for 2019 iPhones. Consequently, the upcoming smartphones from Apple will be kitted with 7 nm+ based chipsets which is assumed to carry the A13 Bionic moniker.

TSMC starts risk production of 5nm chipsets, 7nm+ and 5nm+ chipsets in the works as well

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited or TSMC is a leading chipmaking company that manufactures chipsets for Qualcomm, …

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited or TSMC is a leading chipmaking company that manufactures chipsets for Qualcomm, Huawei, Apple, etc. The Taiwan-based company is working on the next advanced 5nm node to manufacture future chipsets and according to its timeline, the company has already started risk production and expects to ship out mass production for the next-gen 5nm chipsets by the first half of next year.

When compared to the 7nm manufacturing node which was used in Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Kirin 980 AI chip as well, the 5nm node will offer up to 45% reduction in area and 15% higher performance along with other improvements that will be shipped out with it.

Apart from the 5nm chipsets, TSMC is also working on refined and improved next-gen 7nm+ node using EUV technology since the previous 7nm chipsets weren’t able to use EUV technology due to some problems. The EUV technology used in 7nm+ chipsets will offer 20% higher transistor density along with 12% reduction in power consumption when compared to the currently used 7nm process which is a huge win over limitations.

It is a known fact that the Taiwan-based chipmaking giant is Apple’s sole chip supplier till 2020 where it manufactures 7nm Apple A12 Bionic chips and currently moving on to the next Apple A13 chipsets for 2019 iPhones which could either use 7nm+ or 5nm node for sure. Further, Qualcomm is also contracting TSMC to manufacture Snapdragon 855 which is the premium chipset for flagship smartphones.

Keeping all types of chipsets aside, TSMC is also in works in developing 5nm+ chipsets that will be refined, improved and attuned version of the 5nm chipsets that will bring in a reduction in area, power consumption, increase in performance and more. The 5nm+ process is expected to start risk production in the first quarter of 2020 followed by mass production in 2021.

However, the question arises, what after 5nm chipsets? Could TSMC or any other chipmunking giant manufacture a 3nm chip since we are already pushing the limits of how many transistors a chip can hold even though we have been able to reduce the size of transistors to a mere 5nm across (5nm chipset) as we are reaching the top of Moore’s Law here? Anyways, whatever it is, you’ll get to know more about the technology here on True-Tech for sure.
