Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Limited (
Traditional Chinese: 台灣積體電路製造股份有限公司, abbrev. TSMC) nyse|TSM lse|TMSD is the world's largest dedicated independent semiconductorfoundry, with its headquarters and main operations located in the Hsinchu Science Parkin Hsinchu, Taiwan. TSMC's market capitalizationas of 15 August 2008is US$54.19 billion.
Although TSMC offers a variety of wafer product-lines (high-voltage, mixed-signal, analog), TSMC is best known for its logic product-line. Various
fablesshigh-tech companies such as ATI, Broadcom, Conexant, Marvell, NVIDIA, and VIA are customers of TSMC.
At least one semiconductor company,
LSI Logic, re-sells TSMC wafers through its ASICdesign services and design IP-portfolio.
*One six-inch (150 mm) wafer fab in full operation (Fab 2)
*Five eight-inch (200 mm) wafer fabs in full operation (Fabs 3, 5, 6, 7, 8)
*Two 12-inch (300 mm) wafer fabs in production (Fabs 12, 14)
*WaferTech, TSMC's wholly owned subsidiary eight-inch (200 mm) fab in Camas,
SSMC(Systems on Silicon Manufacturing Co.), a joint venture with NXP Semiconductorsin Singapore which has also brought increased capacity since the end of 2002
Taipei TimesTSMC is also planning to build another fab.
WaferTech is a
pure-play semiconductor foundrylocated in Camas, Washington, U.S.A. It is the largest pure-play foundry in the United States. The facility employs 1100 workers.
WaferTech was established in June 1996 as a joint-venture with TSMC,
Altera, Analog Devices, and ISSI as key partners. The four companies along with minor individual investors invested US$1.2 billion dollars into this venture, which was at the time the single largest startup investment in the state of Washington. The company started production in July 1998 in its 8 inch (200 mm) semiconductor fabrication plant. Its first product was a 0.35 micrometre part for Altera.
TSMC bought out the joint venture partners in 2000 and acquired full control, and currently operates it as a fully-owned subsidiary.
