Russia gets the first batch of Arm-based local SoCs: all 66 kg

The chip designer Baikal Electronics from Russia received the first batch of commercial Baikal-M system-on-chips from its manufacturing partner TSMC. SoC will enable Baikal’s iRU and other partners to start producing “all-Russian” PCs, but the number of chips that Baikal can purchase from TSMC will make it difficult for such computers to compete with x86-based systems in number.

Baikal Electronics got 5000 this week Baikal-M (BE-M1000) SoC from TSMC, report News CenterAccording to the company, the “package” weighs 55 kilograms (which means that each SoC weighs 13.2 grams), which is a new way to quantify semiconductors. Due to global chip shortages and TSMC’s high utilization rate, shipments were delayed by about four months. At the same time, the company expects to obtain 10,000 to 15,000 SoCs per month starting early next year.
