Recently,media reported that the United States plans to “from the United States technology” standard from 25% to 10%, to power to block TSMC and other non-U.S. companies to supply Huawei. Reported that TSMC internal assessment, 7nm from the United States technology proportion of less than 10%, can continue to supply, but 14nm will be limited.
According to the latest news in the domestic media, TSMC responded: “The United States has not changed the rules at present, we will not answer speculative questions.” “
Next year, TSMC’s 5nm process is expected to go into production, and Apple’s A14 processor, Huawei’s Kirin 1000 processor and AMD’s Zen 4 architecture processor are expected to be the first to adopt TSMC’s 5nm.
It is reported that at present, the average yield of 5nm EUV has reached 80%, the peak is more than 90%. The new 5nm process has been piloted and is scheduled to be mass-produced in the first half of 2020.
