TSMC’s design house partner Asicland has won AI chip firm D.notitia as a customer.

More and more South Korean AI chip firms are seeking to use the Taiwanese contract chip maker to manufacture their chips, which is expected to boost Asicland’s earnings in the coming years.

The design house firm said last week that it signed a deal worth 9.7 billion won to design and supply chips for an unnamed customer.

Sources said on Monday that the customer was D.notitia and the chip will be made using TSMC’s 12-nanometer process. 

D.notitia was founded in October last year by Moo-Kyoung Chung, who was the CTO of telco SK Telecom’s AI chip subsidiary Sapeon up to April that year. The startup received 14 billion won in its first funding round despite having just started based on Chung’s profile.

Sources said many working at Sapeon are expected to join D.notitia and those in the investment community believe Chung had been responsible for the business model and core technologies of Sapeon.

D.notitia is planning to add its software stack on the chip made through Asicland and supply the AI solution to other companies.

In February, the startup announced that it was collaborating with Kosdaq-listed electronic microscope firm Coxem to develop an AI electronic microscope solution.

Meanwhile, Asicland has also won a deal worth 10 billion won with another South Korean AI fabless chip company recently.

TSMC’s process IPs __ which outnumber those of Samsung Foundry __ are being well received by domestic chip companies, sources said.
