TSMC offered the world's first 0.18-micron (µm) low power processes technology in 1998. The Company continued to build its technology leadership by rolling out new low power processes every two years, ranging from 0.13μm and 90-nanometer (nm) to today's most advanced 20nm and 16nm technologies.

Low power process technology is critical because it significantly accelerated the technology development of the mobile and smart electronic industries that, in a little over a decade, have changed the world and the way we live. Low power technology drives a wide spectrum of applications, including mobile phones, wireless communication, tablets, Bluetooth devices, gaming products, and a variety of portable consumer electronics.

TSMC provides the most comprehensive ultra-low power technology platform, covering processes nodes, ranging from 0.18µm to 16nm FinFET, that meet the diversified requirements of today's IoT and smart wearable innovations. Compared with previous low power nodes, TSMC's 16nm ultra-low power processes reduce operating voltages by 20% to 30% to lower both active and standby power consumption to significantly increases battery life by two to 10 times for IoT and wearable applications.
