TSMC Ships More 28nm Wafers than Expected, Projects Rapid Ramp.
[i][font="Arial"][left]Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company said this week that the ramp up of chip production using 28nm process technology will be fast and the technology will contribute to 10% of TSMCs wafer revenue already in the second half of 2012. Although sales in the Q4 2011 were lower than expected, the world's largest contract maker of semiconductors believes that chips made using advanced nodes will continue to be in demand.[/left][/font]

[font="Arial"][left]"Our 28nm entered volume production last year and contributed 2% of Q4 2011's wafer revenue. Defect density and progress is ahead of schedule and is better than 40/45nm at the corresponding stage of the ramp-up. We expect 28nm amp this year to be fast and we expect 28nm will contribute more than 10% of total wafer revenue this year," said Morris Chang, chief executive officer and chairman of TSMC.[/left][/font]
