Samsung claims that it can create 5nm chipsets without much fundamental difficulties


Last updated: February 25th, 2015 at 12:23 UTC+02:00

Samsung recently started mass-producing 14nm FinFET chipsets and it has also showcased 10nm technology during the ongoing ISSCC (International Solid-State Circuits Conference) 2015. Seemingly, Samsung claims that it can also create 5nm chipsets without much fundamental problems.

Samsung’s Kinam Kim confirmed during the Samsung keynote at the conference that “there are no fundamental difficulties until 5nm.” Apparently, the Korean semiconductor giant has also found out a way to shrink the size further down to a whopping 3.25nm. We are intrigued to know what material will Samsung use to fabricate these chipsets as Intel hinted during the same conference that it is not viable to use Silicon for moving below 7nm. Apparently, Intel is planning to use Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) to make chipsets with transistor size of 7nm and below.

Samsung is currently using 14nm FinFET technology based Exynos 7 processor inside its upcoming flagship smartphones and tablets. Samsung is focussing heavily on its semiconductor business and is trying to compete with Qualcomm and Intel. It will also make 80 percent of mobile processors used in Apple devices from 2016.
