Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), one of the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers, has started volume production of its most advanced chips at its facility in Taiwan. This will allow the company to increase its output of high-tech chips, which are in high demand for a variety of applications, including smartphones, computers, and other electronics. As a producer of cutting-edge circuits used in technologies ranging from cellphones to fighter planes, the long-awaited mass production of 3-nanometer chips has begun as interest is drawn to the domestic and international investment ambitions of the largest contract chipmaker in the world.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd (TSMC) began mass production of its most advanced chips in southern Taiwan on Thursday. Chairman Mark Liu said demand for the firm’s 3-nanometre chip was “very strong”, driven by new technologies including 5G and high-performance computing products. Earlier this month, TSMC said it would more than triple its planned investment at its new Arizona plant to $40 billion.
The world’s biggest producer of semiconductors, TSMC, says it will create end products with a market value of $1.5 trillion within five years. Taiwan’s government has dismissed concerns about a “goodbye to Taiwan” trend for the chip industry.
