Ménage à trois


Chipmaker Qualcomm announced that it would keep working with TSMC and develop 28nm with the Taiwanese foundry. The announcement comes just a day after the company signed a production deal with AMD spinoff Globalfoundries.

Qualcomm doesn't want to put all its eggs in one basket, but unlike Gloabalfoundries, TSMC won't make 32nm Qualcomm chips. The company plans to migrate directly from 45nm to 28nm and the first 28nm tape-outs are expected later this year.
