United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC), the second largest contract chip maker in Taiwan, is planning to initiate trial production of chips on the 14 nanometer process in the first half of 2015.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the largest contract chip maker in the world, launched commercial production of chips on the 20nm process in January this year and is expected to start mass production of chips on the 16nm process in January of next year.
