The recently unveiled Apple A14 Bionic is the world’s first mobile chipset based on 5nm process technology. Based on the leaks, all the flagship mobile chipsets launching later this year will be built on the 5nm node. TSMC, the world’s biggest contract chipmaker, has reportedly made a significant breakthrough in the development of the 2nm technology.
TSMC will now be adopting a new multi-bridge channel field-effect transistor (MBCFET) architecture for their 3nm process nodes. It is based on a high-performance gate-all-around (GAA) process which will help in overcoming the physical limitations of the current FinFET process.
TSMC begins 2nm technology development, production begins in 2024
The company first established an R&D team on the 2nm project just last year. According to one of the company’s executives, mass production of the 2nm chips will only begin in 2024. The yield rate of the trial production will reach 90 percent by the
