PragmatIC 2020 predictions
In August 2018, Global Foundries announced a radical restructuring in the wake of AMD’s decision to take its 7nm business to TSMC, further concentrating the industry into the “mega-fabs”. The top 5 now represent 90% of the foundry business . The primary driver for this continued concentration is the cost of building, ramping yield, and efficiently operating the latest fabs, and we can be certain that in 2020 spending by these be...
