TSMC also covered manufacturing excellence. The TSMC “Trusted Foundry” tagline has many aspects to it, but manufacturing is a critical one. TSMC is the foundry capacity leader but there is a lot more to manufacturing as you will read here. Which brings us to the manufacturing accomplishments from the briefing:

TSMC 2023 North America Technology Symposium Overview Part 1
The TSMC 2023 North America Technology Symposium happened today so I wanted to start writing about it as there is a lot to cover. I will do summaries and other bloggers will do more in-depth coverage on the technology side in the coming weeks. Having worked in the fabless semiconductor ecosystem the majority of my 40 year semiconductor… Read More
TSMC N3 will be a Record Setting Node!
With the TSMC Technical Symposium coming next month there is quite a bit of excitement inside the fabless semiconductor ecosystem. Not only will TSMC give an update on N3, we should also hear details of the upcoming N2 process.
Hopefully TSMC will again share the number of tape-outs confirmed for their latest process node. Given… Read More
Top 10 Updates from the TSMC Technology Symposium, Part I
Last week, TSMC held their 23rd annual technical symposium in Santa Clara. In the Fall, TSMC conducts the OIP updates from EDA/IP partners and customers. The theme of the Spring symposium is solely on TSMC’s technology development status and the future roadmap. Indirectly, the presentations also provide insight into … Read More
TSMC and Flex Logix?
There was a lot to learn at the TSMC Technical Symposium last week, in the keynotes for sure but also in the halls and exhibits. Tom Dillinger did a nice job covering the keynotes in his posts Key Take aways from the TSMC Technology Symposium Part 1 and Part 2 but there was something interesting that many people may have missed in the exhibit… Read More
TSMC and ARM Serving up 7nm!
One thing I learned while writing the books about TSMC and ARM is that collaboration has always been at the core of both companies. They started with collaboration on day one and it is now a natural part of their business models. And the word collaboration in the fabless semiconductor ecosystem gets redefined at every process node,… Read More
Redefining the Foundry Model: TSMC versus GlobalFoundries
The 17[SUP]th[/SUP] annual TSMC Technical Symposium finished its North American tour in Boston, a day before the Boston Marathon. I would like to be clever and say the foundry business is also a marathon but it clearly is not. If you watch TSMC, the foundry business is both a sprint AND a marathon!
