Samsung 7nm EUV development is six months ahead of schedule

Word is going around that Samsung's 7nm EUV process technology is six months ahead of schedule! The South Korean giant is reportedly pushing hard and fast with its new node and has secured Qualcomm as a customer. It's rumored that Samsung's first 7nm tech will be a 7nm LPP (low power plus) node that utilizes extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography.

A report from SE Daily claims Samsung is on track to make Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 on its 7nm LPP node by the end of this year or early next year. Samsung says its 7nm node offers 40 percent smaller chips than its 10nm process. It can also offer a 10 percent performance boost or up to 35 percent lower power consumption.
Reportedly, Samsung's first 7nm product will be a 7nm LPP (low power plus) node achieved using Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography or EUV. Samsung has set up production conditions and finalized the development of the 7nm EUV process on its Hwaseong S3 line which is located near the future site of the dedicated EUV line mentioned above. The engineers and designers that developed the 7nm process and production line have reportedly shared the design database and methodologies necessary to begin sample production for customers and have moved onto to developing Samsung's 5nm process (which is still in the early stages). Getting the EUV process up and running is an impressive feat and the expertise that Samsung is gaining will be a major breakthrough in the barrier to entry of single-digit nanometer processes.
