TSMC Boosts 40nm Revenue by 30% in the Second Quarter
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company this week announced financial results for the second quarter of 2010. The firm reported record revenues and profits, which is an indicator that its customers expect demand for their products to uptick. The company's most advanced 40nm node brought the company 30% more revenue than in the previous quarter and the demand towards the process was growing more rapidly than the demand towards other nodes.
In the second quarter, demand for TSMC’s wafers continued to be strong, and wafer shipments in all major semiconductor market segments increased from their first quarter levels. Advanced process technologies (130nm and below) accounted for 72% of wafer revenues. Among the high-end production technologies, 40nm got the maximum actual boost: it not only grabbed additional 2% of TSMC's revenue share, but considering the increase of the company's revenue by 13.9% quarter-over-quarter, the output of wafers processed using 40nm technology increased by 30% sequentially.
