DigiTimes reports TSMC has seen strong demand for its sub-40nm capacity:
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has enjoyed strong demand for sub-40nm node technologies tightening capacity for the advanced processes, according to industry sources. The foundry has also seen rising orders for some of its mature processes used to produce mainly analog and LCD driver ICs.
Wireless-communications chip vendors have fully booked up TSMC's capacity for sub-40nm processes, the sources observed. Capacity is expected to remain tight throughout the first quarter of 2012, the sources said.
