  • Google has reportedly tapped KYEC for the testing of its “self-developed” Tensor chips.
  • Testing is said to start “in the middle” of this year.
  • It’s believed this move is part of Google’s plan to switch to TSMC’s 3nm process

Since the beginning, Google has worked with Samsung to develop its Tensor chips. However, this partnership may not last, as it has been reported that Google plans to move on from Samsung to TSMC. Google may have just taken its first step toward that future by handing off chip testing duties to KYEC.

According to a report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily, Google has released test orders to the Taiwanese manufacturer KYEC. As a bit of background, KYEC offers testing services for new chips that will be manufactured in Taiwan. The report claims that Google has also purchased hardware that will be placed in KYEC’s Miaoli Tongluo factory to make the testing process smoother. It’s said that testing “will begin in the middle of this year” and will ramp up in volume gradually.
