TSMC nabs deal with Apple to manufacture next-gen chips [Rumor]

Taiwanese daily newspaper, Digitimes, is reporting that TSMC or the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company has finalized a deal with Apple to supply 20nm, 16nm, and 10nm chips.

The deal, according to insider sources, allegedly includes TSMC's IC design service partner, Global UniChip. The three-year agreement is expected to supply Apple with the enough next-generation A-series chips that are developed using 20nm, 16nm, and 10nm processes.

DigiTimes adds that TSMC's foundry will begin manufacturing Apple's chips next month, although the supply will be limited and small. However, production is expected to ramp up come December in order to meet the target of producing the first batch of chips in the first quarter of 2014.

Interestingly, DigitTimes is also reporting that Apple's A8 processor will be used on a new iPhone that will be announced next year

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
