TSMC to show off 20nm FinFET transistors at IEDM

Posted on Thursday, September 23 2010 @ 00:14:40 CEST by

Tweaktown reports TSMC will show off 20nm FinFET transistors at a conference in December. The company has no plans to use these transistors at 20nm, but the technology may show a glimpse of the future of chip manufacturing.
Most existing products are built using planar transistors, invented in 1959 they are low-cost, efficient transistors. But, chip makers are now looking at other transistor design methods to shrink their die below 20nm, TMSC seems to heart the FinFET design because of their "fish-fin" design which reduces the size of working transistors.

TMSC will show off high performance 22nm and 20nm tech that features FinFET transistors at IEEE's International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) which is happening on 6 - 8 December of this year in San Fransisco.
