[Reporter Hong Youfang/Hsinchu Report]TSMC, the leading foundry manufacturer, is in the leading position in advanced manufacturing processes. After the 5nm process in mass production has begun to contribute significantly to revenue, the 3nm process will begin installation as scheduled starting today. It is expected Trial production in the second half of this year, and mass production in the second half of next year according to the established schedule, is expected to be the world’s leading advanced manufacturing process for mass production. Major manufacturers such as Apple and Intel will be the main customers.
TSMC Nanke Fab 18 is the main production base of 5nm and 3nm. President Wei Zhejia recently stated that the industry-leading 5nm has entered the second year of mass production and has the best performance, power consumption and area (PPA). ), driven by smartphones and high-performance computing (HPC) related applications, demand continues to be strong.

The proportion of 5-nanometer in TSMC’s revenue is increasing quarter by quarter. In the second quarter of this year, the proportion of revenue is 18%, which is a further increase from the previous quarter’s 14%. It is expected that this year will account for approximately 20% of TSMC’s revenue.
TSMC’s 4-nanometer family of 5-nanometers is expected to start trial production in the third quarter of this year and enter mass production in 2022. It is expected that the demand for smartphones and HPC-related applications will continue to be strong, and the demand for the 5-nanometer family will continue to grow in the next few years.
TSMC stated that 3nm will continue to use FinFET transistor architecture, and it will be developed in accordance with the plan and progress is good. The platform is completed to support smart phones and HPC computing applications. The number of design finalizations is more than that of 5nm, and it will also be a wafer generation. The most advanced technology.
According to the supply chain, TSMC actively rushed to build a 3-nanometer factory last month in order to start the installation of 3-nanometer-related equipment as scheduled from August. It is expected to conduct risky trial production in the second half of this year and mass production in the second half of next year. Although there have been reports of early trial production or postponement of mass production of TSMC’s 3nm, TSMC is still advancing in accordance with the established schedule, and is expected to continue to lead Intel and Samsung in advanced manufacturing processes.
