UMC announced it will kick off trial production of its 14nm FinFET process in the first half of 2015. The company is working together with IBM to advance into 14nm FinFET technology.
The company currently has more than 20 tape-out clients for its 28nm processes, with about 10 clients likely to begin volume production in 2014, said UMC, adding that 28nm products are expected to account for 5% of total revenues by the year-end.

UMC is currently operating at 90% of its total production capacity with its 8-inch fabs running almost at full capacity, the Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) quoted company chairman Stan Hung as saying.
