[Taipei 4th Reuters]–Taiwan Stacked Cable Manufacturing (TSMC), the world’s largest semiconductor contract manufacturer, plans to build another factory in Arizona, USA. Three people familiar with the matter revealed to Reuters.
TSMC is currently constructing a semiconductor manufacturing plant in Phoenix, Arizona, and plans to start mass production in 2024.
Up to five more factories are planned to be built in the state, according to people familiar with the matter.
The monthly production capacity of the Phoenix factory is 20,000 12-inch wafers, which is not large by industry standards. It is unknown how much the production capacity will be expanded by expanding the factory.
TSMC announced last month that it plans to invest $ 100 billion over the next three years to expand its semiconductor plant’s production capacity.
