Industry sources told DigiTimes that TSMC's 5nm process will be ready for volume production earlier than some expected. It now looks like TSMC will be able to offer 5nm to clients as early as March 2020.
While demand for its 7nm manufacturing node has been strong, TSMC is ready to move its more advanced 5nm process to volume production in first-half 2020 - probably as early as March. The foundry house has been fast developing advanced chipmaking processes. It has also been keen on developing new packaging technology in support of its task to extend the relevance of Moore's Law.
The Taiwanese foundry is currently seeing strong demand for its 7nm nodes, with 5G applications being a major growth driver.
