DigiTimes writes Taiwan's Hsinchu District Prosecutors' Office charged a former TSMC deputy manager with stealing secrets from the Taiwanese foundry. The man, identified as "Chou" in the article, tried to take 16nm and 10nm process technology trade secrets with him to a new job in China:
Chou had resigned from TSMC, ready to join Shanghai Huali Microelectronics (HLMC) when he was arrested, the office said. Chou has now been indicted for breach of trust. TSMC itself discovered the matter and reported it to the prosecutors, the office added.
