A new report comes in from a trusted source, which notes that both Samsung and TSMC have 14 and 16-nanometer FinFET capacity ready for the A9 processor. Samsung has reportedly agreed to Apple’s demands, and went as far to provide nearly free backend services for the chips, hoping to become Apple’s first choice.
Many manufacturers will try their hardest to produce the smallest and the most efficient mobile processors, with that said, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. announced that a 10-nanometer FinFET chip will be on schedule around early 2017, this was reported this week by TSMC.
A new rumor surfaced and suggests that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company or TSMC, is ready to start mass production of Apple’s in-house designed ‘A9′ mobile processor for the new iPhones, usually referred to as the ‘iPhone 6S’ and ‘iPhone 6S Plus’. Read more
TSMC, the world’s biggest dedicated independent semiconductor foundry, is said to finish their 10-nanometer pilot production line by the end of June, with many sources suggesting that the new facilities will produce an Apple-designed ‘A10′ processor said to power an ‘iPhone 7′ and other iOS devices due in 2016.
