     28nm from TSMC in the 4th quarter

    TSMC very recently opened an extension to its Fab 12, so as to increase production capacity and respond to the “recent and urgent” increase in demand. Phase 5 of the Fab should begin mass production in the third quarter but also serve as the basis for R&D for the foundary for forthcoming technologies.

    TSMC says that it is currently working on 28nm and 22nm engravings in the Fab 12 Phases 1 & 2, but 22nm and the processes to follow will in fact be finalised in phase 5. TSMC says moreover that it envisages launching mass production of 28nm in Fab 12 Phase 5 in the fourth quarter… or in the same period as GlobalFoundaries!

    Reduction in the fineness of transistors is a critical point for the foundaries and it looks as if GlobalFoundaries’ arrival on the market is forcing TSMC to up its game.
