Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) has received permission from the Taiwanese government to build a chip manufacturing plant in Japan. This is stated in the statement of the Investment Commission of the Ministry of Economy, which approved the relevant investments.
“The technology that will be used in the new TSMC plant in Japan lags behind that in Taiwan by at least one generation or more. There should be no fears about the leakage of high technologies, ”the investment commission said in a statement.
Plans for joint construction of a plant in Japan by TSMC and Sony Group announced last month… The cost of the enterprise is estimated at $ 7 billion.
TSMC is the largest semiconductor contract manufacturer in the world.
