Chinese Economics Thread

As of now, the Shanghai Microelectronics has launched its first domestic machine, using ARF technology, which it says can fully meet the current needs of SMIC.

According to experts, the advanced machinery launched by Shanghai Microelectronics can accurately produce 11-nanometer chips, although the current large demand for Huawei is mainly supplying 14-nanometer chips.

And, based on this new breakthrough, Shanghai Microelectronics is also advancing to a 7-nanometer chip process. After one more step, the company says it will have machines capable of making 7-nanometer chips – "just around the corner".

This could just be authorial confusion, but if the SSB 800 can produce 11nm (presumably he's referring to DUV immersion single exposure, multiple exposures in 7nm), then what's the 7nm machine? EUV?

US has just officially placed Huawei and 20 other companies as being controlled by the Chinese military. This opens up means for additional sanctions.

I think this was mentioned before under the semiconductor thread. So even if Huawei is able to produce chips without American equipment, America will still find ways to kill it. It has other tools to do so.
hi Petrolicious88

From what I gleam from the semiconductor thread, almost all supply chain have a chinese counterpart or non American suppliers, the only critical part is the LIthograph machine which SMEE have a major breakthrough this year.

Im optimistic , America has been a good teacher , it really kick start and awaken the chinese spirit, like I said 2020 is the year of China semiconductor renaissance.

Hi Skywatcher

I had the same question with WTAN from the semiconductor thread, maybe its the 22nm machine that he mention developed this april.
