TSMC confirmed that although the United States will trade with Huawei, the factory will continue to work with Huawei. The next event that will work is to produce Kirin 985 with 7nm + production.
The difference between 7nm last year and 7nm + of this year is that the production process is changed to EUV. High precision machines. Enabling the production of chips with the same production process size But there are more transistors, less power consumption, less heat. In addition to Kirin 985, there will be another Apple A13 customer this year.
For TSMC ‘s direction, this year will focus on the production of 7nm + and develop the 5nm production process to be ready for production at the beginning of next year. It is expected that mobile phones that use the 5nm process chip will begin selling in June next year.
