Huawei has become the second-largest client of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), and will be the first company adopting the pure-play foundry's extreme ultraviolet (EUV) process node manufacturing, according to a recent Chinese-language Commercial Times report.
Huawei through its chip subsidiary HiSilicon will be TSMC's first customer adopting the foundry's N7 Plus and N5 fabrication processes, said the report, without citing its source.
According to TSMC, both its N7 Plus and N5 processes will incorporate EUV lithography technology. The foundry is scheduled to move the N7 Plus to volume production in the first quarter of 2019, and targets 2020 for volume production of the N5.
