Samsung Kickstarts Mass Production of Its 2nd-Gen 10nm FinFET Process Technology

Also mentioned is that the processor is built on second-generation 10nm process technology.

The advantage of using LPP or "Low Power Plus" is that it results in 10 percent higher performance and 15 percent greater efficiency. Since this new technology is based on the company's existing process, this should reduce production time-and have higher initial yields.

Samsung has announced that it has moved to mass production of 10nm LPP chips.

Smartphones could soon be about to get even more powerful after Samsung confirmed it had started production of its next-generation mobile hardware.

The new hardware is being produced using Samsung's second-generation FinFET manufacturing process, known as 10LPP (low power plus) at its plants in South Korea and Texas.

Samsung further mentioned the new Samsung Exynos 9810 SoC will be used in digital devices scheduled to launch early next year and are expected to become more widely available throughout the year. The additional 20 percent reduction in transistor size is said to "offer customers distinct competitive advantages for a wide range of applications". The S3 foundry is Samsung's third fabrication lab and will be in charge of producing 7nm FinFET with Extreme Ultra Violet in the coming years.

Samsung also announced that its newest manufacturing line, S3, located in Hwaseong, South Korea, is ready to ramp up production of process technologies, including 10nm and below. Samsung is also working on scaling its current process to produce 8LPP. "While Samsung will continue to work on developing the technology 8nm-process technology", said Ryan Lee, Vice President of marketing at Samsung Electronics.
