Gartner analyst predicts foundries will have to lower prices

Posted on Wednesday, July 14 2010 @ 05:00:10 CEST by

Gartner research vice president Dean Freeman believes increased competition in the leading-edge foundry business will lead to lower prices, because there's a lot of capacity coming on line at the 40nm and 28nm nodes.
According to Freeman, the semiconductor industry has never before had more than one foundry that could offer process technology near the leading edge. But today, there are three—Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (TSMC), Globalfoundries Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.—Freeman said.

"I think you are going to see leading edge prices drop off very quickly as the competition moves into that area," Freeman said Monday (July 12) at the annual SEMI/Gartner Market Symposium here. "There is a huge amount of capacity coming on line at the 40- and 28-nanometer nodes."
