Next year TSMC will start manufacturing the first 20nm chips

The Taiwanese company TSMC confirmed its intention to start production of chips using 20 nm technological processes in 2013. However, for now the company does not plan its production on an industrial scale and will release the first chips in a limited quantities, giving them a total of 1% of production capacity. According to the head of the company, the mass production of semiconductor chips with this technology will not begin until 2014.



Meanwhile TSMC Company is going to produce only one version of the chip, which will be able to enter into the wide range of devices, from smart phones with low-power to high-performance graphics cards. For comparison, the Taiwanese company currently has four different output chips on 28-nm technology. These are 28LP (poly / SiON) for low-power low-cost chips, 28HPL (HKMG) for use in low power applications, 28HP (HKMG) for high-performance chips and 28HPM (HKMG). The latest version combines elements of high-performance chips with high efficiency …

D-Link Showcases AC1900 DWA-192 USB Adapter

D-Link announces the availability of a new wireless USB adapter, entitled AC1900 DWA-192. It is called to facilitate the connection of desktop/mobile PCs (as well as multimedia & gaming devices) to wireless 802.11ac networks, providing up to 1300 Mb/sec within the 5 GHz range or 600 Mb/sec within the 2.4 GHz range.



D-Link AC1900 DWA-192 features USB 3.0 interface, connecting directly to the PC/laptop without additional power source. High-speed interface ensures super-fast data transfer speed (5 Gb/sec) in order to comply with the latest wireless requirements. This adapter proves to be rather efficient when combined with AC1900 DIR-880L or AC3200 DIR-890L wireless routers.


The model employs MIMO 3x4 chip with an integrated Smart-antenna and an amplifier. It supports AC SmartBeam technology that is intended to form a directional signal, void of any interference. Moreover, it provides for a smooth broadcasting of HD video, high-quality gaming and video-chatting, fast file …

Rosewill Introduces PSU Line of 80 Plus Platinum Standards

Rosewill, Californian hardware manufacturer, has gladdened its potential customers with a new PSU line codenamed Fortress. The major peculiarity of this line is that all products are characterized by rather high efficiency coefficient: up to 94% in 230 V alternating current networks. The new line involves models of 450W, 550W, 650W, and 750W showings which have already received 80 Plus Platinum certificate.



Low power dissipation is achieved exactly due to the high efficiency which reduces ventilation demands immensely. The employment of 135 mm fans provided for the perceptible decreased of noise. Those features are considered to be the basic attraction for the customers.


All four models in Fortress line are developed according to a similar scheme with a single 12 V bus. The chief differentiation between the models lies in the output capacity and a cable set. Hence, the high-order PSU is capable to give current of up to 62.5 A; in the aggregate with the available 4 …
