DigiTimes reports TSMC held an opening ceremony for its new 300mm Fab 16 wafer fab in Nanjing, China. During yesterday's ceremony, CFO Lora Ho said production at the plant already kicked off in May, about half a year ahead of schedule.
Dubbed Fab 16, the new 12-inch fab has directly entered 16nm FinFET chip production with installed capacity reaching 10,000 wafers a month. Production capacity at Fab 16 will climb to 15,000 12-inch wafers monthly by the end of 2019, and reach 20,000 units in 2020, according to Ho.
