Tinuku Qualcomm partnered TSMC to create 7nm chipsets

Qualcomm has designed the 7nm Snapdragon chipset since the second quarter of last year and says it will utilize the tools provided by TSMC.

Qualcomm previously relied on Samsung's production expertise to produce Snapdragon 820 and Snapdragon 821 using 14nm process and this year Snapdragon 835 uses Samsung 10nm process.

The smaller the number on the process, the higher the transistor can be found on the chipset. This means that the chip on semiconductors more powerful and more energy efficient to function optimally.

Qualcomm's decision to collaborate with TSMC is thought to be one step ahead when compared to competitors related to 7nm manufacturing. But now, Globalfoundries are more advanced for jumping 10nm to be able to use 7nm.

Globalfoundries is predicted to deliver 7nm chips next year and used on devices marketed in 2019. If the report is true, Samsung is not only losing Qualcomm who chose TSMC, but also Apple.

Last month, Apple reportedly started an exclusive production on the Apple A11 processor that will be used on iPhone models marketed in 2017.

TSMC was established in 1987 and is headquartered in Hsinchu Science and Industrial Park in Hsinchu, Taiwan. In addition to semiconductors, the company has also invested in the solar energy industry.
