TSMC Makes Progress in 2-nm and 1.4-nm Chip Technologies

April 11, 2024 – According to recent reports from the industry chain, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has made significant progress in its 2-nanometer and 1.4-nanometer processes.

Sources indicate that TSMC has set a timeline for the mass production of 2-nanometer and 1.4-nanometer chips. The trial production of the 2-nanometer process is slated to commence in the latter half of 2024, followed by small-scale mass production in the second quarter of 2025. Notably, TSMC’s Arizona-based factory will also be involved in the production of 2-nanometer chips.

Looking ahead, TSMC plans to advance to the 1.4-nanometer process node by 2027, which has been officially designated as “A14”.

Currently, it is highly likely that Apple will be the first to adopt TSMC’s latest process technology. As per TSMC’s production schedule, the iPhone 17 Pro is expected to be among the first devices to feature a TSMC 2-nanometer chip, tentatively named the A19 series, in line with Apple’s naming convention.

Regarding the 1.4-nanometer process, given its planned mass production in 2027, the iPhone 19 Pro series is anticipated to be among the inaugural products utilizing this advanced technology.
