TSMC to team with academics to develop 2 nm process technology

According to Digitimes, the world´s largest foundry TSMC will continue to innovate to keep Moore's Law alive. TSMC is in mass production of 16 nm and will enter 10 nm production by the end of 2016.

Steaming ahead TSMC will start risk production of 7 nm chips in early 2017 and is been engaged in the development of 5 nm process technology, according to co-CEO Mark Liu TSMC.

However, it does not stop there, TSMC has a team of  300-400 engineers dedicated in R&D for 3nm process and "...expects to team with academics to develop 2 nm process technology, according to Liu. With technology breakthroughs, TSMC is confident Moore's Law will continue to be relevant."
