Not only Intel is having trouble: 10 nanometer chips may reach us late

A new report also states that Difficulty manufacturing innovative chips to scale - and not to mention that Samsung has similar problems

Just yesterday we reported to you about the plans of the central Taiwan chip maker Invest a crazy amount of money in building future chip factories in five years and more from that moment, highlighting the great potential risk involved - and here comes the report that helps prove and clarify the challenges facing the various chip makers around the world today, in the process of manufacturing that is to be considered " Primitive "almost at a time when we will reach 5 nm and 3 nm production processes.

According to popular news site digitimes, TSMC is now experiencing significant problems with mass production in an innovative 10 nm process - when the quality and standard chip output is lower than expected, jeopardizing the ability to deliver their scope, the company has pledged to its customers, including Mediatek chip developer, HiSilicon The chips for Huawei - and especially Apple, which relied on the company's services for the chipsets A10X and A11, for its next iPad and iPhone devices, respectively.

Apple's new devices will be delayed?
New handsets Will they be delayed?

TSMC's problems are very reminiscent of the company's problems Over the past two years, as part of its efforts to bring about the development and commercial production of 10 nanomaterials, which has led to significant delays and changes in its schedules, with the fourth generation of chips Which seems to be expecting us in 2018 as well, compared to two or two-and-a-half-year rounds of production technologies that the giant company has successfully offered in the past.

B- But the positive reputation of the source makes us believe that there is no smoke without fire, and even if not all the details are accurate, the very unexpected challenge of mass production does exist.

Another company that has experienced problems and challenges in transition to 10 is nm , The production partner of TSMC, which will be responsible for the production of innovative Snapdragon 835 chips . According to the report, Qualcomm also planned to launch new intermediate chips 600 based on the production process of 10 nm during the year of 2017, but the uncertainty about the volume of chip output led them to make a program change and prefer the process of production of the Korean giant in -, Which is expected to reach very good maturity during the coming year after a year and a half in which it is available for mass commercial products.

Samsung also has difficulty in the same technological field?

All of these issues could lead to delays in the launch of new leading smart products, or alternatively to a situation where there is a shortage of these products due to a volume of production that cannot support the scope of demand - but ultimately it is clear that the first 10 nm products are from home And from TSMC, will come to us sometime in the first half of 2017, and all we have to do is wish that such delays, if they occur, will help us receive products that meet the high expectations for improvement And improving efficiency, and not compromise products that came to market before their technology became fully mature.
