TSMC starts working on 5nm Apple A14 chip infrastructure
Date: 10 April 2019
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has announced the release of its 5nm chip design infrastructure.
According to the reports, all the orders of the A10 Fusion, A11 Bionic, and A12 Bionic chipsets were fulfilled by TSMC.
TSMC said in a statement: “Compared with TSMC’s 7nm process, its innovative scaling features deliver 1.8X logic density and 15% speed gain on an ARM® Cortex®-A72 core, along with superior SRAM and analog area reduction enabled by the process architecture. The 5nm process enjoys the benefits of process simplification provided by EUV lithography and is making excellent progress in yield learning, achieving the best technology maturity at the same corresponding stage as compared to TSMC’s previous nodes.”
