TSMC started 2nm R&D, who is more advanced in the level of chip manufacturing technology?
Recently, the world-renowned semiconductor company TSMC officially announced that it has officially launched the research and development of the 2nm process. The factory is located in the Southern Science and Technology Park in Hsinchu, Taiwan, and is expected to be put into production in 2024.
In order to counter the competition of Samsung, TSMC is advancing the R&D and production plan for the 2nm process. Zhuang Zishou, director of the Taiji Power Plant, said that TSMC’s first 3nm plant in Taiwan will be put into operation in 2021 and will be mass-produced in 2022.
Just a few days ago, TSMC successfully passed the EIA in the 3nm R&D plant in Hsinchu, Taiwan, and it is expected to catch up with the mass production schedule. TSMC also revealed that it is expected that the 2nm plant R&D and mass production will be placed in Hsinchu five years later. Part of the reason for the site selection is to avoid brain drain. At present, TSMC has about 7,000 semiconductor process R&D talents in Hsinchu.
