Samsung has added a new manufacturing technology into its roadmap. The 11LPP fabrication process is designed for mainstream and higher-end smartphone SoCs. The technology will come online next year and will build upon the company’s 14- as well as 10 nm-branded process technologies. The Samsung 11LPP process is another hybrid process technology designed to speed up migration from one node to another by Samsung Foundry.
