Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC is planning to produce chips with
advanced 3-nanometer technology at its new factory in the U.S.
state of Arizona but the plans are not completely finalised yet,
the company’s founder Morris Chang said on Monday. [...]
Chang, speaking to reporters in Taipei after returning from the
APEC summit in Thailand, said the 3-nanometer plant would be
located at the same Arizona site as the 5-nanometre plant.
“Three-nanometer, TSMC right now has a plan, but it has not been
completely finalised,” said Chang, who has retired from TSMC but
remains influential in the company and the broader chip industry.
“It has almost been finalised — in the same Arizona site, phase
two. Five-nanometer is phase one, 3-nanometer is phase two.”
Would be a big win in all sorts of ways if this comes to pass.
