    Biden to visit Taiwanese chip manufacturer TSMC's Arizona plant on Dec 6

    If you want to see birthing pains just wait until Intel opens up in Ohio. And what about all of the other fabs around the world? The semiconductor industry as a whole is resource constrained, not just TSMC. Just a couple of other things: Building and ramping fabs is resource intensive but once...

    Biden to visit Taiwanese chip manufacturer TSMC's Arizona plant on Dec 6

    Since the designs were originally on TSMC I would have stayed there. New designs I would do a competitive analysis of internal and external processes for that design (same as fabless companies do) and may the best fab win. Process nepotism is a bad thing as Intel has shown. Some people call it...

    Who has the lead in Chiplet technologies?

    I think time-to-market is a big benefit of chiplets. Just like commercial IP, using silicon proven IP blocks or die reduces risk and saves time. The commercial IP market outgrows semiconductor an EDA every year. Chiplets may do the same. As long as the foundries back chiplets, like they do...

    NVIDIA Allegedly Eyeing Samsung’s 3nm Process Node for GeForce RTX 50 Series GPUs

    Nvidia moved back to TSMC at 5nm, 4nm and 3nm so their TSMC customer share will increase in the coming years. Nvidia is doing very large and complex chips, and given they bounce around foundries they do not have inner circle privileges at TSMC. Bottom line: It will take Nvidia longer to get to...

    Scott Jones will still be posting on SemiWiki. As you can imagine he has been quite busy with the acquisition. I will see him next week at IEDM so expect more Scott Jones blogs soon. And no TechInsights will not be acquiring SemiWiki. We are not for sale, absolutely.

    NVIDIA Allegedly Eyeing Samsung’s 3nm Process Node for GeForce RTX 50 Series GPUs

    NVIDIA is designing to TSMC N3E. Samsung 3nm GAA is still in the development phase. The problem with being on the bleeding edge of semiconductor technology is that there is a lot of bleeding, absolutely. Here is a design challenge when moving to a GAA process. FinFETs are open source so there...

    Morris had filter issues a long time ago and now it is even worse as he ages. Same can be said for most people in their 70s and 80s including our sitting president.

    Warren Buffett doesn't see a Taiwan invasion

    I agree. If there is an invasion of Taiwan by China it will erase a record amount of wealth around the world. Trillions of dollars.

    Do wafer costs decline as a node matures?

    You can see semiconductor manufacturing process improvements now with new node names. TSMC 16/12nm, 7/7+/6nm, 5/4nm and the different variations for the different markets to increase the life of a fab (N3, N3E, N3P, N3X). Given that there are still plenty of 200m fabs in production I see a very...
