TSMC to soon start 3-nm chip

HONG KONG: Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) announced on Tuesday that it will soon produce an ultramodern 3-nanometer (nm) chip as the leading contract chipmaker faces supply chain issues and other constraints has to fight. According to the South China Morning Post, TSMC CEO C.C. Wei acknowledged that the company is struggling with delivery delays as the global expansion surges.

“In the past, when automakers told me they were missing semiconductors, I thought, ‘How come these guys couldn’t understand the importance of chips?’ But later, TSMC’s own equipment suppliers suffered from supply problems and told me that it was also due to component and chip shortages,” Wei said during an annual technology forum in China.

“I think the whole world has historically failed to realize how supply chain management is important, and the whole world has not done a good job on supply chain management, including TSMC,” Wei was quoted as saying.

TSMC also aims to mass-produce its 3D chip-stacking technology, known as SOIC, later this year Apple and Intel will be the first companies to adopt TSMC’s 3nm chips Samsung last month celebrated the first shipment of 3nm semiconductors at a ceremony, a major milestone in the race to become the Building the most advanced and efficient chips ever The next generation 3nm chips are based on Gate All Around (GAA) technology, which Samsung says will ultimately enable up to a 35 percent reduction in area while delivering 30 percent higher performance and 50 percent lower power consumption.

compared to the existing FinFET process. TSMC, the world’s largest contract chip maker, had announced that it would begin mass production of 3nm chips in the second half of the year. Samsung, the world’s largest memory chip maker and second-largest foundry player, said its 2nm process node is in the early stages of development, with mass production planned for 2025.
