Qualcomm to shift 20nm orders to Samsung or Globalfoundries

DigiTimes heard Qualcomm plans to shift its 20nm chip orders from TSMC to Samsung or Globalfoundries over concerns that the foundry is favoring Apple:
Qualcomm's move comes after TSMC began volume production of Apple's A8 processors based on advanced 20nm process in the second quarter of 2014 and has thus allocated much technological resources to the production - a favor with Apple that has upset Qualcomm, currently TSMC's largest client, the sources explained.

Thus, Qualcomm is seeking support from other foundry houses for the 20nm production, with the initial focus to be on production of 4G modem solutions, added the sources.
