Samsung Starts Mass Production of Chips Using 10nm Low Power Plus (10LPP) Process Tech

Samsung Foundry on Wednesday revealed that it has started mass production of SoC products using its second generation 10 nm Low Power Plus (10LPP) fabrication technology. The new manufacturing process will enable developers of chips to reduce power consumption or increase performance of their products compared to the first-gen 10 nm tech (10LPE).

Like previous node updates from Samsung, the new 10LPP fabrication process promises a range of improvements depending on what a customer is looking for. On the performance front the process is said to offer 10% higher performance at the same complexity and power, or alternatively, customers can design for an up to 15% reduction in power consumption at the same frequency and complexity. Samsung Foundry does not disclose how it managed to improve the 10LPP vs. the 10LPE, but it is logical to assume that the company had to optimize the transistor structure somehow. Samsung’s 10LPP and 10LPE technologies are still very similar from design rules and manufacturing points of view, so experience obtained with the former will be applicable to the latter.
