TSMC More-than-Moore technologies provide additional values

Recently, the global semiconductor industry is seeing a new trend called “More-than-Moore” (MtM), where added values to devices are provided by incorporating functionalities that do not necessarily scale according to Moore's Law.

Moore's Law states that the number of transistors on a chip will double every 18 months. However, due to the physical properties of the chip, Moore's Law will one day face its ultimate limitation. While packing more transistors on a chip to add power and performance is still a key focus, developing novel MtM technologies on top of the Moore's Law technologies to provide further values to semiconductor chips has also become a more important issue.

That's what gave rise to MtM, which is symbiotic with Moore's Law and allows non-digital functionalities to migrate from the system board-level into the package (SiP) or onto the chip (SoC).

More-than-Moore technologies cover a wide range of fields. For example, MEMS applications include sensors, actuators and ink jet printers. RF CMOS applications include Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi. CMOS image sensors are found in most digital cameras. High voltage drivers are used to power LED lights. These applications add value to computing and memory devices that are made from the traditional Moore's Law technology.

Here at TSMC, we have the technical capability and capacity to satisfy customers' wide-range needs. Adding values to customers' products has, and always will be, our top priority.
