The coronavirus pandemic will have an impact on Samsung's 3nm rollout, according to a new report by DigiTimes. The site picked up word that Samsung's plan to enter 3nm volume production in 2021 is unlikely to materialize due to delays in shipments of EUV and other critical production equipment. As such, 2022 is now a more realistic timetable.
Samsung unlikely to move 3nm to volume production until 2022: Samsung Foundry, the foundry operations of Samsung Electronics, has set its goal of moving its advanced 3nm process technology to volume production as early as 2021. But the Korean firm will probably have to reschedule it to 2022, as the coronavirus pandemic's impacts on logistics and transportation services are causing delays to deliveries of EUV and other critical production equipment, according to industry sources.
