Qualcomm to use TSMC 28nm process

Posted on Friday, January 08 2010 @ 18:01:32 CET by


Following news that Qualcomm will use GlobalFoundries, it's now also revealed that the company is working with TSMC on 28nm process technology and intends to move directly to the advanced process. Qualcomm says using the latest process technology is important to reduce the size and power consumption of its Snapdragon chipset.
Tape-outs on the 28-nm node are expected in mid-2010. Having just announced that it is expanding its foundry roster with GlobalFoundries Inc. (Sunnyvale, Calif.), the lastest announcement demonstrates Qualcomm's continuing relationship with the world's largest foundry supplier of chips.

Qualcomm stressed the importance of being at the leading-edge in process technology for reduced size and power consumption for its ARM-based Snapdragon chipset. "The two companies are capitalizing on their long-term relationship as Qualcomm works on migrating directly from the 45-nm to the 28-nm node," Qualcomm said in a statement.
