These places are the best in America for educating students at all levels. The facility will utilize TSMC’s 5-nanometer technology for semiconductor wafer fabrication and have the capacity to produce 20,000 wafers per month.

“The scale & technology is similar to what TSMC did in China, suggesting a balance between the U.S. & China,” Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. analysts led by Mark Li wrote after the announcement. AZ International Auto Show & New Car Buyer's Guide 2020 Model Year.

✳️Big News ✳️@TWSemicon is building its new semiconductor facility in PHOENIX! We thank Chairman Liu for his confidence in our state and Governor Ducey for his continued strong leadership. (Reuters) - Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd 2330.TW, the biggest contract chipmaker, said it plans to build a $12 billion factory in Arizona in an apparent win for the Trump administration's efforts to wrestle global tech supply chains back from China. Construction is set to begin in 2021, with production planning to start in 2024.

The Asian chipmaker’s U.S. investment underscores the delicate balance it needs to strike between its huge roster of American clients and China, which views independently governed Taiwan as part of its territory. “The budget... suggests the eventual scale won’t be big,” Bernstein analysts said in a note, adding revenue contribution from the plant will stay at around 3%-4%. "We look forward to advancing our relationship with the company in partnership with Secretary Ross and his team at the U.S. Department of Commerce including SelectUSA," which facilitates job-creating business investment in the United States.

According to insiders, the factory director will be the current TSMC technical director Wu Yihuang. Founded in 1987, TSMC is the world’s largest foundry semiconductor manufacturing plant. A historic election is taking place in Maine, where voters are using a ranked choice voting system to determine the state’s electoral votes for the first time in U.S. history. Beyond thanking the company, authorities said little, because it remains an active economic development project. TSMC said its Arizona facility will create 1,600 jobs and a deal to bring highly skilled work to Arizona may help Trump’s re-election prospects this year.

Taiwan Semiconductor cited "forward-looking investment policies" in the U.S. and a talented workforce here as important considerations. The company makes more than 10,700 products, employs more than 51,300 people and operates 16 factories, primarily in Taiwan but with a couple in China and one in Camas, Washington. “While it is hard to be certain, we believe that TSMC announcing a U.S. Fab could remove the threat of further Huawei restrictions in the very near-term at least,” JP Morgan analysts said in a note.

https://t.co/wMIJWh6lpN. Taiwan Semiconductor described its 5-nanometer production capabilities as the most advanced in the world. Gallego in a statement to The Arizona Republic said she and Chris Mackay, the city's economic development director, traveled to Taiwan last year to make a pitch to the company. googletag.pubads().definePassback('/162717810/GizChina/300x300', [300, 300]).display(); googletag.pubads().definePassback('/162717810/GizChina/300x600', [300, 600]).display(); Follow @gizchina

I'm a professional geologist and an enthusiastic writer who is interested in technology. “This project will require significant capital and technology investments from TSMC. The governor also thanked the Trump administration and U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in the statement.

This brings $12B capital expenditure. Includes information from Arizona Republic reporter Lorraine Longhi. Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority, said in a statement: "The Arizona Commerce Authority is incredibly honored that following a competitive process, Arizona has been selected by TSMC for its new U.S. manufacturing operation.

The company manufactures chips for Apple iPhones, and Apple is one of TSMC's largest customers, according to their reports about the deal. TSMC is a major supplier to U.S. tech giants such as Apple Inc AAPL.O and Qualcomm Inc QCOM.O, as well as Chinese firms like Huawei Technologies [HWT.UL], which Washington has put on a trade blacklist. While the investment falls short of its previous expenditure on cutting-edge factories, it’s a shift for a company that now makes semiconductors for major names like Apple and Huawei Technologies mainly from its home base of Taiwan.

“TSMC could have picked any place in the world to build this advanced manufacturing factory," Ducey said.

Presently, the company already has a vehicle production plant in the United States. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing is a dominant, highly profitable semiconductor maker that was officially launched in 1987 by the Taiwanese government, electronics giant Philips and private investors.

Concentrating such valuable capabilities in the hands of one company in Asia is a concern for the U.S., especially when, across the Strait of Taiwan, China is rushing to develop its own semiconductor industry. While huge in terms of foreign investment in the United States, the plan is small by TSMC’s standards. The United States government has always wanted the world’s largest chipmaker, TSMC, to build an advanced process factory on U.S. soil. A true cutting-edge fab is expensive to build: The company spent NT$500 billion ($17 billion) to build an advanced facility in the southern Taiwanese city of Tainan that will supply new iPhones this year. Its major American customers include Apple and Qualcomm.

Semiconductors play a key role in both consumer electronics and defense equipment.

Its roughly 500 customers include Apple, Intel, Qualcomm and Sony. TSMC said that construction of the Arizona facility would begin in 2021 with production targeted to begin in 2024, and that it would be able to process up to 20,000 silicon wafers per month. 2021 construction planned.

"The current geopolitical climate and trade tensions between the U.S. and China could serve as a catalyst or deterrent to TSMC’s fab plans in the U.S. should a resolution be reached or a less hawkish administration take over after the U.S. election in November," he cautioned, "So we think there is a scenario in which this fab does not get built.". However, our flexibility in assurance of supply for diverse customer needs, best-in-class cycle time, agility in meeting customers' capacity needs, ability to scale and maintain high yield, and accurate delivery make semiconductor manufacturing excellence a core strength.
2021 construction planned. Its chips power Apple’s iPhones and the iPhone maker works closely with TSMC to become the first to take advantage of new advances in its chip-making processes.

Doug Ducey says a Taiwan-based maker of silicon chips plans to build an advanced semiconductor factory in Arizona. That expansion is not lost on both domestic and foreign companies looking for new operation centers," Gallego said. In this photo illustration the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) logo is seen displayed on a smartphone. "Phoenix is the fastest growing city in the nation for many reasons. Ducey said several sites in Phoenix are being evaluated for the location of the factory, which will be TSMC’s second manufacturing operation in the United States. From 2021 to 2029, TSMC’s expenditures (including capital expenditures) on this project are approximately $12 billion. However, it denies any progress in terms of the final plant construction decision.

Doug Ducey and Mayor Kate Gallego confirmed, with production targeted to begin in 2024. TSMC’s total spending on this project, including capital expenditure, will be approximately $12 billion from 2021 to 2029, according to the Governor's Office.

They chose Arizona for our unbeatable business climate, already thriving tech sector and ready access to an international supply chain,'' Ducey said in a prepared statement.

With all the support that the U.S. government is willing to provide, this will become reality soon. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing plans to spend $12 billion building a chip plant in Arizona, a decision designed to allay U.S. national security concerns and shift more high-tech manufacturing to America. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. said Thursday night it will spend $12 billion to build a new chip factory in Arizona. The facility will use TSMC’s 5-nanometer technology for semiconductor wafer fabrication and have the capacity to produce 20,000 wafers per month, the governor's statement said.
