TSMC invests $590 million on 40nm equipment

Posted on Wednesday, April 22 2009 @ 18:22:57 CEST by

Taiwanese foundry TSMC has invested a total of NT$20 billion (about US$590 million) on new equipment for the production of 40nm chips at its 300mm fabs. The foundry is expected to offer mass production on its 40nm nodes in the second half of this year.
The world's largest contract chipmaker is expected to kick off mass production on its 40nm processes at Fab 12 in the second half of 2009, when demand is expected to bounce back, the sources said.

So far this week, TSMC has announced via the Taiwan Stock Exchange (TSE) six separate machinery equipment purchases from Applied Materials Asia-Pacific, ASML Hong Kong, Ebara, KLA-Tencor, Lam Research and Novellus Systems, and two purchases from Dainippon Screen Manufacturing. Total transaction amounted to almost NT$7 billion.
