Chinese chip manufacturers to tap TSMC's 7nm process for next-gen AI chips

May. 08, 2018 – 

Just last week, we reported that TSMC's 7nm (non-EUV) process has reached volume production, and that it's expecting over 50 tape-outs during 2018. TSMC has had a good run of late, scoring some major design wins across a broad spectrum of parts from leading fabless semiconductor companies for CPUs, GPUs, baseband processors, semi-custom chips, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs).

Today, we have more news from the Far East confirming that several Chinese chip manufacturers, including Cambricon Technologies have tapped TSMC's 7nm process for their next-gen AI processors.

If the name Cambricon does not appear familiar, that's okay. Cambricon Technologies was only established in 2016, and specializes in designing chips for artificial intelligence workloads. Cambricon recently unveiled their third-generation 1M chip for edge computing applications to power decentralized, real-time, and on-device data processing. Cambricon's AI tech currently powers the Neural Processing Unit on the Kirin 970 SoC. Cambricon's 1M chip is also designed using TSMC's 7nm process.
