TSMC ramps volume production of 40nm process

Abstract:
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has announced volume production of the foundry segment's only 40nm semiconductor manufacturing process with the successful ramp of its 40nm General Purpose (G) and Low Power (LP) versions. A comprehensive design infrastructure including library, IP, design flow, engineering service, and monthly CyberShuttle prototyping vehicles is also ready for these two processes.

TSMC's 40nm G and LP processes were formally announced in March as part of the company's advanced technology offering. The 40G process targets performance-driven applications including CPU, GPU (graphic processing units), game consoles, networking, FPGA, hard disc drive, and other devices. The 40LP process targets low power applications including cellular baseband, application processors, portable consumer and wireless connectivity devices.
