South Korean electronic giant Samsung has finally gotten round the making of the next generation of mobile chips. Yes the brand has nailed the much-anticipated chip manufacturing technique that will help phones perform faster and keep their batteries for a longer period of time.
The company is now building 7-nanometer chips using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology , a process which has been under reviews and test runs for years.
Chips are manufactured by using light to project patterns of circuitry onto silicon wafers surface. This next generation of chips, which Samsung has perfected its production will however, have features that are smaller than the wavelength of a traditional light.
Researchers have known for a long time that EUV, is the next big thing in the world of mobile development, but there has been a lot of restrictions based on the fact that machines to create these chips can be even more expensive, and there are a lot of technological issues delaying its high-volume production.
Well according to Samsung, two major challenges the brand faced had been the power of the light source and the volume of wafers that could be processed every day, but these challenges have been fixed, which means the brand would soon go commercial with a large volume of new generational chips for other mobile manufacturers.
This new chip is 40 percent smaller surface area compared to the company’s previous 10-nanometer tech, while reducing power consumption by 50 percent or boosting performance by 20 percent.
Currently, the company is the largest memory chip in the world, and the perfection of this new high-end memory chip will mean that the brand has created a double or triple number margin with rival chip manufacturers.
