TSMC looks to 12nm Dresden fab

TSMC, the world's leading foundry, may change its policy and agree to set up wafer fabs in Germany and Japan.

www.eenewseurope.com, Jul. 13, 2021 – 

The additional fabs would be in Dresden, Germany and in Japan's Kumamoto district. In both locations TSMC has made agreements with local authorities and is in talks with local customers, said a report by Digitimes.

In Germany, the plant would provide 16nm/12nm processing to satisfy the needs of such companies as NXP Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies and On Semiconductor, the report added. These have more focus on automotive chip production, which has been a key shortage.

This is quite different from the discussions around a leading edge 5nm or 3nm fab, although by the time any fab is built and qualified in two to three years there will be demand for automotive parts built on the 5nm process node.
