UMC to Expand 300mm Fab Capacity in Tainan

UMC plans to expand capacity at its 300mm fab in Tainan through a collaboration model with several of its leading global customers.

www.eetasia.com, May. 11, 2021 – 

United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC) plans to expand capacity at its 300mm Fab 12A Phase 6 (P6) in Taiwan's Tainan Science Park through a collaboration model with several of its leading global customers. Under this mutually beneficial arrangement, these customers will make a deposit that secures their long-term chip supply at P6 using pre-determined pricing that will enable UMC to grow organically and meet its long-term profitability and market relevance goals.

The P6 expansion is scheduled for production in the second quarter of 2023, with total investment for the project earmarked at NT$100 billion. In addition to UMC's previously announced 2021 CAPEX of US$1.5 billion, the bulk of which is allocated towards equipment for the company's Fab 12A P5 site adjacent to P6, total UMC investment in the Tainan Science Park will reach approximately NT$150 billion over the next three years.
