When it comes to manufacturing SoCs in the smartphone industry, the big companies are Samsung and TSMC.
However, Intel has just announced that they will use their 10nm manufacturing process to build ARM chips for companies who want to hire them.
ARM has announced they will be using TSMC's 10nm FinFET technology in order to create a 64-bit ARM v8-A processor test chip.
the codename for this chip is Artemis, and it will have 4 cores instead of 8 core big.LITTLE architecture that they've been doing lately. This is only a test chip to see...
Samsung is said to be heavily investing in their chip-making business to try and keep up with the top manufacturer TSMC. The move includes the purchase of the latest extreme ultraviolet equipment for mass production of its 7-nanometer process.
TSMC fabricates chips for companies like Apple and Qualcomm who design the chip themselves and then outsource the production side of things.
It has been announced that Qualcomm will be using Samsung to mass produce the Snapdragon 820 and today we learn that TSMC is expecting their second...
