ARM stated this optimization will drive the specification of the Cortex-A15 Processor Optimization Pack (POP). TSMC’s 20nm process provides more than a 2X performance increase over preceding generations.

It is expected that SoCs using the technology will be ideal for a wide variety of markets, including smartphone, tablet, mobile computing, high-end digital home, servers, and wireless infrastructure.

The test chip was implemented using a commercially available 20nm tool chain and design services provided by the OIP ecosystem and ARM Connected Community partners.

TSMC sees successful collaborative milestone as confirmation of its Open Innovation Platform (OIP), in that it promotes innovation for the semiconductor design community.
