ARM and TSMC will create a 7-nm processor

This joint effort is part of the unity between the two organizations, which work with chips 16 and 10 nm. We expect their 10-nm chips around Q1 2017, several months ahead of Intel. While Intel will continue to linger, it is possible ARM and TSMC will be able to get ahead of long-term industry leader.

ARM and TSMC have agreed to join forces for the development of 7-nm chip. This is not the first processor in the world, created using this process technology – in the summer of last year succeeded the IBM – but ARM and TSMC are hoping to become the first to create a chipset for the commercial market.

When IBM first developed a 7-nm chip, they have made a breakthrough with the use of EUV technology, which uses a wavelength as small as 13.5 nm.

TSMC does not use this opportunity to develop his model 7-nm chip, possibly because of EUV-lithography is currently the main obstacle to any kind of mass production.

So it will be doubly interesting to see how we will cope ARM and TSMC. Given the fact that the reduction of the chip size improves its energy and power at times, luck manufacturers to help them introduce a commercially attractive product.
