TSMC Chairman Deyin Liu said that the pursuit of more extreme energy efficiency is at the heart of semiconductor technology innovation, according to a report by Taiwan’s United Press.
Liu Deyin took TSMC’s mass-produced 5nm as an example, the power consumption of each unit product is 7% of that of 28nm, which is equivalent to 83% power saving than 28nm process, so the semiconductor industry can help solve the energy challenges facing the world.
According to the introduction, the semiconductor in energy saving efforts will continue, TSMC’s upcoming mass production of 3-nanometer process, that is, towards this direction. And the innovation of semiconductor technology is the soul of TSMC.
In the past 15 years, in order to meet the market demand for high computing and power saving, semiconductor technology has continued to improve performance, and every two years the “energy efficiency” doubled every two years, and this trend will continue, and even more.
According to D.Y. Liu, the semiconductor process is driven by innovations in materials, device integration, circuit design and system architecture, allowing system performance and energy efficiency to reach the ultimate performance of the best ever. He also said that “the semiconductor industry can help solve the energy challenges facing our world.
