TSMC, SamsungElectronics’ advanced technology war is about to enter the 3nm generation.However, according to semiconductor equipment makers, it is very difficult to increase the yield of 3 nanometers. TSMC has constantly revised the 3 nanometers blueprint and divided it into multiple versions, such as N3, N3E and N3B, to seek the best design and meet different customer needs. However, the 3 nanometers plan is still full of problems so far, and monthly capacity may not meet the target in the second half of the year.Many IC design customers have extended their stay in the 5 nano family generation time.
