Samsung Electronics has announced the launch of serial production of single-chip systems for 10-nanometer FinFET technology. According to the South Korean manufacturer, it is the first in the industry has mastered the production of such products. About the company plans in 2016 to master serial output on a 10-nanometer FinFET technology has been known for more than a year ago .
The advent of 10-nanometer SoC Samsung production of electronic products is expected in early 2017.
Process technology, designated 10LPE, to assess the Samsung, allows more efficient use of chip area by 30%. Thus it is possible to reduce power consumption by 40% or increasing the productivity by 27%. Serial production of products using the process technology 10LPP, optimized by the criterion of performance is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2017.
