TSMC clarifies that it is not a R&D base built in Osaka, Japan

Recently, TSMC will build a research and development base in Osaka, Japan this year. The plant will be the company's second base in Japan, where it will be responsible for technology development and customer support. However, TSMC immediately clarified that Osaka is a new office.

Founded in 1987, TSMC is the world's largest foundry semiconductor manufacturing plant. The company's customers include Apple, Qualcomm, and more. On November 9 last year, the company announced the establishment of a joint venture called "Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd." with Sony Semiconductor Solutions in Kumamoto, Japan. The joint venture initially plans to invest $7 billion to build a wafer foundry.

It is reported that the factory officially started construction in April this year. After completion, 22nm, 28nm, 12nm and 16nm processes will be used to manufacture wafers for related customers. It is planned to start shipping in December 2024.
