TSCM plans $10 billion mega fab

Posted on Friday, December 10 2010 @ 19:34:01 CET by


CENS reports TSMC has plans to build one more mega fab capable of churning out at least 100,000 300mm wafers a month. Construction of the fourth giga fab, codenamed Fab 16, is expected to start in 2014 and will cost up to NT$300 billion (approx. US$ 10 billion).
The company, currently the world`s No.1 pure silicon foundry, debuted the latest mega-fab project at a recent conference after announcing three similar projects over the past few months.

These “jumbo” factories are announced amid the firm`s lingering capacity shortage and its optimism about the firm`s 2011 business prospects for semiconductor devices.

The four factories are projected to turn out more than 600,000 wafers combined a month, around 1.5 times the company`s current output at all its 300mm fabs.
