Top foundries push up, skip process nodes

11/15/2012 |

Leading silicon foundries are accelerating their transitions to the next process node or, in one case, skipping a process node entirely, Mark LaPedus notes in this analysis. United Microelectronics is bypassing the 20-nanometer planar node altogether, going directly from 28nm planar to 14nm finFETs with technology licensed from IBM, he writes.
