The Suzhou Institute of Nano-tech and Nano-Bionics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Sinano), in collaboration with the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, has newly published breakthrough findings related to ultra-high accuracy laser lithography.
However, the revealing is still at the theoretical state and it could take years and a lot of cash to make this a reality. As compared with others, China is still manufacturing chipsets, which is often re-appropriated to any likes of TSMC.
This new process of laser lithography which is introduced by china is a major step forward for the country. Dutch government blocked ASML, to china customers, after pressure from the united states.
China’s largest foundry — SMIC — still produces chipsets on a 14nm node process while most of the latest chipsets are being manufactured on 5nm node, including the upcoming Apple A14 and Huawei’s next-gen Kirin SoC.
china is kept making chipset manufacturing and combined with the proper investments, and soon China, SMIC and similar companies start using the latest technology for making chips. This will give a benefit to china and smartphone maker in the country such as Huawei. currently, SMIC planning to raise $2.8 billion in Shanghai’s Star Market for its growth.
