TSMC Transplants The Most Advanced 5nm Process Wafer Technology To The U.S. Plant

TSMC Transplants The Most Advanced 5nm Process Wafer Technology To The U.S. Plant

In May 2020, TSMC announced that it would spend US$12 billion to set up a factory in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Recently, the US media CNBC visited the plant exclusively. According to the director of TSMC, TSMC has transplanted all the successful experience of Taiwan to the United States, making it the most advanced 5nm process wafer fab in the United States. CNBC reported that TSMC’s Arizona plant is scheduled to start production of 5-nanometer wafers in 2024, with a monthly capacity of about 20,000 wafers. Rick Cassidy, CEO and General Manager of TSMC Arizona, told CNBC: "These chips will be used in many different places, such as central processing units (CPU), graphics processing units (GPU), infrastructure processors (IPU), etc., for smart Mobile phones.” The report pointed out that semiconductor technology originated in the United States, but for decades, the center of gravity of the global semiconductor industry has continued to flow to Asia. According to the International Semiconductor Industry Association (SEMI), in 2020, Asian chip production capacity will account for 79% of the world's total. TSMC alone will account for 24% of global production capacity, while US chip production capacity will only account for 12% of the world's total, far lower than the 37% in 1990.
