[] TSMC's 16-nm FinFET process coming next year

TSMC is partnered with some of the biggest names in the computing business, including AMD, Apple, Nvidia, and Qualcomm. Those firms come up with the chip designs, and TSMC turns 'em into working silicon. Right now, the foundry's most advanced fabrication technology uses 28-nm transistors. What about the next node?

A technology roadmap published by EE Times indicates that 20-nm chips should start rolling off TSMC's production line next year. Like its current 28-nm process, the 20-nm chips will use traditional planar transistors. 3D transistors, otherwise known as FinFETs, are coming at the 16-nm node. The ...
