DigiTimes reports TSMC is now installing 3nm tools in its facilities. The rollout of this node remains on track for risk production in 2021 and volume production in the second half of 2022.
TSMC has already entered volume production for 5nm node, and it is reportedly developing variants for the 5nm process. Meanwhile, construction of 5G base stations is picking up momentum again, which is creating tight supply for optical filters.
