Samsung announces industry-first mass production of System-on-Chip with 10nm FinFET technology


Last updated: October 17th, 2016 at 11:44 UTC+02:00

Samsung today announced that it has now started mass production of System-on-Chip (SoC) products with 10-nanometer FinFET technology, the company says that this is an industry-first. It follows the successful mass production of the industry’s first FinFET mobile application processor back in January 2015. “The industry’s first mass production of 10nm FinFET technology demonstrates our leadership in advanced process technology,” said Jong Shik Yoon, Executive Vice President, Head of Foundry Business at Samsung Electronics, adding that the company will continue its efforts to advance scaling technologies.

The company’s new 10nm FinFET process uses advanced 3D transistor structure with additional improvements being made to the process technology and design enablement compared to the 14nm process. Samsung says this allows an up to 30 percent increase in area efficiency with 27 percent higher performance or 40 percent lower power use. Samsung has also said that the second-generation 10nm processor with performance boost is slated to enter mass production by the second half of next year. Devices powered by these new SoC products will be launched early next year.
