TSMC Readies Next-Gen HBM4 Base Dies, Built on 12nm and 5nm Nodes

Of the several major changes coming with HBM4 memory, one of the most immediate is the sheer width of the memory interface. With the fourth-generation memory standard moving from an already wide 1024-bit interface to a ultra-wide 2048-bit interface, HBM4 memory stacks won’t be business as usual; chip manufacturers are going to need to adopt…

TSMC: We Want OSATs to Expand Their Advanced Packaging Capability

Almost since the inception of the foundry business model in the late 1980s, TSMC would produce silicon. In contrast, an outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) service provider would then package it into a ceramic or organic encasing. Things have changed in recent years with the emergence of advanced packaging methods that require sophisticated tools…
