Elbrus processors now want to be produced in Zelenograd instead of Taiwan

According to Konstantin Trushkin, deputy general director of the Russian ICST, the company is considering the possibility of transferring processor production from Taiwan to Mikron in Zelenograd, Russia.
ICST is engaged in the development and supply of Elbrus processors.Image source: TSMC According to RBC, processors were previously produced on order of ICST by Taiwan's TSMC, but the latter ceased cooperation with the domestic developer in early March.
TSMC is one of the leading semiconductor manufacturers in the world.
The ICST portfolio includes chips for production of technology from 16 to 130 nm, whose customers are mostly law enforcement and government agencies.
\"The company plans to increase production of 180-90 nm chips from 3,000 to 6,000 wafers per month by 2025, which will require about 10 billion rubles by 2030.
The funds are likely to be raised as part of a special national project to develop electronics.
By the way, the transfer of Elbrus production to Mikron will also require time and money - at least a year and several billion rubles.The option of establishing a separate Elbrus company not subject to sanctions was considered, but apparently it was decided not to resort to that.
According to Trushkin, Russian factories can \"create decent processors with sovereign Russian technologies for critical information infrastructure, information security and other markets.\" Another interlocutor of RBC showed that \"in the near future we should not count on our own production of 28 nm technology, nor on reaching an agreement with other foreign factories.
According to this interlocutor, 90-nm Elbrus would be suitable \"except for thin clients, cash registers, or for some special applications.
