I am searching for process node data sheets. Specifically, I'm interested in TSMC's 16nm, 12nm, 10nm, 7nm nodes, as well as Samsung's 14nm, 10nm nodes. I did not find anything with Google.

How can I access process node data sheets?

    \$\begingroup\$ Perhaps you might explain what "process node data sheets" are for? \$\endgroup\$ – Dwayne Reid Sep 9 '18 at 22:34
  • \$\begingroup\$ I mean general documentation pertaining to a process technology. I want to compare, for example, TSMC's 16nm node with Samsung's 12nm node. Standard cell library databooks would be a good example of documentation I'm after. As an example, here is the databook for TSMC's 180nm node. utdallas.edu/~mxl095420/EE6306/Final%20project/… \$\endgroup\$ – Randomblue Sep 9 '18 at 22:37

    \$\begingroup\$ Step 1: Call your local TSMC or Samsung salesperson. Step 2: Convince them you are legitimately interested in and have the financial capability to design and fabricate a design on their process. Step 3: Ask for the design kit. \$\endgroup\$ – The Photon Sep 9 '18 at 22:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Randomblue, that doesn't look like TSMC documentation. It looks like documentation for a cell library offered by a 3rd-party IP vendor. \$\endgroup\$ – The Photon Sep 9 '18 at 22:38
