Russia targeting domestic 28nm process by 2030
Russia has drawn up a plan to spend $38.4 billion developing a domestic semiconductor industry, reports Cnews, with the initial target of having a 90nm process in place this year, and a long-term goal of having a domestic 28nm process by 2030.
The plan is due to be finalised and sent to the prime minister for approval on Thursday.
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the US put a ban on companies selling chips, and the technologies to make chips, to Russia.
TSMC and Samsung, which have acted as foundries for Russian chips, will no longer supply them following the US ban.
Russia will be able to get chips from China but nothing more advanced than 28nm.
