28nm technology by TSMC next year

TSMC the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company will start producing the 28nm technology to the full public next year reported digitimes :

TSMC has made significant progress in upward adjusting the manufacturing  readiness of 28nm equipment at its Fab 12 in the Hsinchu Science Park  HSP), with the maturity level hiked from less than 50% in the fourth  quarter of 2009 to more than 90% currently, the company indicated. The  more advanced the manufacturing processes, the lower the initial  manufacturing readiness of equipment and more efforts needed for  adjustments, TSMC said, adding 90nm equipment, for example, has an  initial maturity level of nearly 100% and almost does not need any  adjustment, TSMC explained.


In addition to 28nm, TSMC has urged its suppliers of equipment and materials to speed up R&D for 20nm process.
