Qualcomm预计其未来的骁龙5G移动芯片组将采用三星的7纳米LPP EUV制程工艺

2018221日,圣迭戈——全球先进半导体技术领导者三星电子和Qualcomm IncorporatedNASDAQ: QCOM)子公司Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.今日宣布,双方计划将长达十年的代工合作关系扩展至EUV光刻制程工艺,包括采用三星7纳米LPPLow Power PlusEUV制程工艺制造未来的Qualcomm®骁龙5G移动芯片组。

通过采用7LPP EUV制程工艺,骁龙5G移动芯片组的芯片尺寸将更小,从而为OEM厂商即将推出的产品提供更多可用空间,以支持更大电池或更纤薄设计。工艺改进与更先进芯片设计的结合预计将带来显著提升的电池续航。

去年五月,三星推出其首款采用EUV光刻解决方案的半导体制程工艺7LPP EUVEUV光刻技术的部署预计将打破摩尔定律的壁垒,为单纳米半导体技术的发展铺平道路。

相较于其前代10纳米FinFET技术,三星的7LPP EUV技术通过更少工艺步骤和更佳良率,不仅极大地降低了工艺复杂性,也带来了高达40%的面积效率,同时实现10%的性能提升或高达35%的功耗降低。

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.供应链及采购高级副总裁RK Chunduru示:“我们很高兴能够与三星共同引领5G移动行业。通过采用7纳米 LPP EUV,我们全新一代骁龙5G移动芯片组将充分利用工艺改进和先进的芯片设计,以提高未来终端的用户体验。

三星电子代工业务销售及市场执行副总裁Charlie Bae示:“我们很高兴扩大与Qualcomm Technologies的代工合作关系,在5G技术中采用我们的EUV制程工艺。此次合作是我们代工业务的里程碑,表明了对于三星领先制程工艺的信心
