TSMC is working on creating quantum processors

Semiconductor maker TSMC is working hard on the development of quantum processors supported by the Taiwanese government.

The race for quantum computing is very intense and nobody wants to be left behind in this field. The Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology is actively supporting the development of quantum computers. This body affirms that TSMC is the 'only industrial actor in the projects'. The information indicates that the IBM Q cloud quantum computing platform is involved in the project. The Taiwanese government offers an annual grant of around two million euros for 'each approved research program'


TSMC is developing quantum processors

Currently TSMC is one of the most important processor manufacturers in the world and is at the forefront. The company is the first to offer chips in the 7nm lithography from AMD and NVIDIA. The field of quantum computing is a very new field and TSMC will be working intensively on the manufacturing process.

"The ministry recently approved three special projects proposed by research teams from National Taiwan University, National Central University and National Cheng Kung University, and the projects will last five years," official sources have said.

The company is investigating in the development process seeking to overcome the limitations of conductors using low temperatures. These quantum computing chips require nodes with advanced manufacturing processes.

“Most officials said that quantum computers can solve many problems that existing computers cannot, and they are also capable of processing extremely large data. Next generation computers may be the most ideal for applications in the design of new materials, cryptography, chemistry, biomedicine, computer simulation and pharmaceutical sectors. "
