"We expect Intel to ship 14nm product at the end of this year. Right behind Intel is Samsung who is working on its first FinFET process and we expect Samsung to start shipping 14nm in CY14. Behind Samsung and Intel are TSMC, STMicroelectronics and IBM. Surprisingly, IBM and STM look to have surprisingly strong process technology at 14nm. IBM has a FinFET transistor built on Fully-Depleted Silicon on Insulator (FD-SOI) and STM continues to work on FD-SOI. We believe the IBM and STM processes provide low power and very good analog performance. While Intel remains in the lead in process geometry, we do not believe they have a lead in the SoC designs needed for the mobile era. Intel needs to drive either foundry or mobile revenue to fill its fabs in a stagnant PC environment […] We are seeing a resurgence in IBM’s foundry activity. We believe the company recently signed a licensing deal with ARMH for its 32-bit processor line for ASIC customers. Moreover, our contacts are telling us that they are making customer visits promoting their 14nm process."
