Qualcomm plans to shift 20nm orders from TSMC to Samsung or Globalfoundries, say sources

Qualcomm reportedly plans to shift its 20nm process orders from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to Samsung Electronics or Globalfoundries, according to industry sources. Qualcomm’s move comes after TSMC began volume production of Apple’s A8 processors based on advanced 20nm process in the second quarter of 2014 and has thus allocated much technological resources to the production – a favor with Apple that has upset Qualcomm, currently TSMC’s largest client, the sources explained.
