Samsung: 10-nanometer production schedule

Samsung said to be ramping up its chip production in the 10-nanometer FinFET process on schedule. A stable high yield thus ensures that customers are supplied in a timely manner. According to the manufacturer were already more than 70,000 his first 10-nm-LPE-generation silicon wafers (low power early) delivered since production started in last October.

“Samsung’s 10-nm-LPE shuffles the cards new in the foundry industry”, can quote Jongshik Yoon, who is responsible for the foundry business at Samsung Electronics Executive Vice President. “10-nm-LPP and LPU will go to the end of the year or in the next year in production. We will to continue to provide competitive process technology in the industry.”

Samsung also announced to record 8 NM, as well as 6 nanometers in his ongoing roadmap process. The new procedure should bring greater scalability, performance and energy efficiency, but take at the same time all the innovations of the recent 10-nm and 7 nm technologies. Could explain the Korean manufacturer wants these plans to his U.S. Samsung Foundry Forum on May 24.

also apparently has not given up hope

Samsung, at Apple’s procurement more to train to come, after the Taiwanese chip forge TSMC became the favorite contract manufacturer of processors for iPhones and iPads. According to the Korean ET Samsung invested News therefore amplified in 7-chips of nanometer, to move Apple maybe to use in future iPhones. TSMC does not stand still but also and is already planning a new plant for producing chip in 5 nanometers to 3 nanometers.

started the series production of the new processor of Exynos 8895 in the 10-nm-FinFET method, the Samsung is probably in the Galaxy S8 is. The production of the eight core SoC in 10 nm structure width brings 27 percent more power with 40 percent less energy consumption according to the manufacturer. It should be used not only in smartphones, but also in VR headsets and car infotainment systems.

the sale of new Samsung smartphones Galaxy 8 and Galaxy 8 + should be however said to one week delay and only start on April 28. A low yield of 10-nanometer processors Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 9 (8895) is assumed as the cause for the one-week shift. DISPLAY

wireless networking: free ride for vehicles of the next generation of

has become the networking of vehicles over the last 20 years to a medium for general safety messages and traffic management. But nowadays cars are equipped with new sensors to achieve even better networked and safer driving.
