On September 18, an investor asked on the interactive platform: at present, the company has mass produced 14nm, and the N + 1 generation chip has entered the customer introduction stage, and it is expected to enter mass production in 2021. Is the above news report true? In this regard, SMIC said that the company’s first generation of FinFET 14nm has been in mass production in the fourth quarter of 2019; the second generation of FinFET n + 1 has entered the customer introduction stage, and is expected to trial produce in small batch by the end of 2020. < / P > < p > according to jimicro in February, Dr. Liang Mengsong disclosed the detailed data of SMIC’s next-generation “n + 1” process at SMIC International’s financial report meeting in the fourth quarter of 2019. Compared with 14nm, SMIC’s next-generation n + 1 process improves performance by 20%, reduces power consumption by 57%, reduces logic area by 63%, and reduces SOC area by 55%. Therefore, in terms of power and stability, N + 1 and 7Nm processes are very similar. The only difference is that in terms of performance, the improvement of N + 1 process is relatively small, and the performance improvement of market benchmark should be 35%. Therefore, SMIC’s N + 1 process is oriented to low-power applications. It is understood that SMIC’s 14nm first contributed to revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019. Zhao Haijun, however, said that revenue from 14nm will continue to rise steadily this year, and 14nm production capacity will also increase as the capacity of SMIC’s 12 inch plant in the South will climb. The applications of 14nm include high-end consumer electronics, high-performance computing, media applications, artificial intelligence and automotive electronics.
