Samsung today announced the production of its next-gen 7-nanometer (nm) LPP (Low Power Plus) chips, which is the first in the industry that utilizes and harness the power of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology that will also lead the industry to 3nm process tech.
Semiconductors’ high performance and low power characteristics depend on the width of the circuits that are inserted into the chips’ limited space.
The EUV tech helps in building more detailed semiconductor circuit pattern than the existing argon fluoride (ArF) wavelength and reduces complex multi-patterning process, securing both high performance and productivity.
The EUV technology by Samsung is expected to accelerate the growth of various products such as 5G, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT), Enterprise, Hyperscale Datacenter, Automotive, and Networking.
Take a look at the infographic below to learn more about EUV and how it is expected to contribute to the advancement of semiconductor technology.
