In 4 years they will launch 2nm chips

If we take a global look at the semiconductor industry, we have TSMC in Taiwan as the absolute leader. Next, we highlight Samsung in the South Korean sector and, of course, the Americans with Intel. We can see this trinity as completely unattainable entities for the rest of the companies. but it seems Japan does not agree and plans to return to the industry as a hero semiconductor After more than 20 years, allocation Billions to the company Rapidus to produce 2nm chips,

As the years pass, technology advances not only at the software level but also at the hardware level. This is why it is necessary to develop chips that are faster and/or more efficient. The ideal is to achieve both. performance and efficiency, otherwise we have to sacrifice consumption if we want it to work fast. The problem is that in order to achieve this we need to produce minus nanometer chips And it is a task that becomes increasingly difficult.

Japan will invest $ 2.4 billion annually in Rapidus

About this 20 years There were PC processors that were manufactured 100 nm or more. we’re talking about when these CPUs came along single core and consumption of more than 100W, 100nm may sound strange to you, but it’s just a sign of how far we’ve come. and that is today TSMC’s 5nm is a standard Processor and graphics.

SAMSUNG appeared a few months ago 3 nm, although they have not been used for devices that we know of yet, while Intel continues to dedicate itself to its products. among all these giants Rapid Corp A Japanese chip maker, unwilling to be an ant, wants to be a bigger threat. Japan plans to invest over $2.4 billion annually

Ready to convert from Rapidus N UN TSMC and Samsung rivals,

Rapidus says it will reach 2nm in 2027, but 1nm will be a challenge

tetsuro higashi The President of Rapidus has announced that they will achieve 2 nm in just 4 years for 2027, That may not surprise you considering TSMC says it will arrive in 2025 But we are talking about a Japanese company that hardly anyone knows about. In fact, Higashi is pretty sure that the company, with a multibillion-dollar financial contribution from the Japanese government, will be able to reach 2nm and even produce chips. 1.4 nm in the future,

Of course, he believes that Chips at 1nm will be a big challenge As for Rapidus, so we’ll see how they do from there. Rapidus has been known for barely a few months and already in 2022 they claim that they will make Japan will go from 40 nm to 2 nm, It will mark a huge leap when completed and will be able to revolutionize the semiconductor industry in the Japanese country.

Now that the Japanese government is planning to invest billions a year in this particular company, we will see what its future holds and if they keep their promises, they will be able to compete with Samsung or even TSMC. Will be able to give. The ultimate goal of Rapidus is not only to establish itself as an industry cutting edge chips But financially independent So as not to depend on government aid.
