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 …

Meet a New Masterpiece from Cooler Master: Storm Stryker Casing

Cooler Master developers have recently voiced good news for their most exacting customers: the sales start of casing CM Storm Stryker is round the corner. The new model takes the design of its predecessor CM Storm Trooper but has several striking peculiarities which make the product a real design masterpiece.

System on Module Sauris AM3517/05 Sales Start

The official website of Sauris company is dazzled by the information about the sales start of the systems on modules AM3517/05. The new systems are based on high-performance microprocessors TI Sitara AM3517 or AM3505 developed in the SODIMM-204 form-factor. System designers have extended the data bus to 16 bit and connected it with the flash-memory chip. The extension of data bus allowed for the acceleration of the OS loading. In addition, the systems are equipped with a new keyboard controller that enables the connection of up to 80 keys; the integration of such solution permitted the designers to refuse from the additional elements of keyboard protection from electrostatic restrictions.



The module configuration includes memory of EEPROM type in 64 KB volume capacity, SDRAM DDR2-166 memory in 256 MB capacity, and flash-memory of NAND type in 256 MB capacity. The interface list boasts a number of facilities including Ethernet 10/100 Mb/sec, CAN 2.0b, USBx2, LVDS, McSPI, McBSP, …
