Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) plans to start manufacturing chipsets using the 2nm process from 2025. According to a report by WccfTech, the company is looking to build a second 2nm chip production facility on a golf course next to Puffy Park in Taichung. , Taiwan.
The report said that TSMC CEO Sisi Wei allegedly made a surprise visit to the Taichung City Government last week. At the meeting, Wei and his team of company executives held a meeting with city mayor Xiao-Yen Lu about the third chip manufacturing facility in the city’s Science and Industry Park area. City officials, on the other hand, shared their concerns about the environmental impact of the new chip facility in the area, which remained unresolved during the meeting.
Then speaking at an opening ceremony earlier this week, the mayor of the city of Taichung pointed out that the new chip manufacturing facility is expected to create thousands of new jobs in the area and require investment of nearly one trillion Taiwanese dollars. Also, he stressed that TSMC should consider using renewable energy sources to meet the power requirements of the manufacturing facility.
according to a different report good By GizmoChina, since production of TSMC’s 3nm process is expected to begin in the second half of 2022, production of chips based on the company’s 2nm process, will only be possible in 2025. The 2nm manufacturing process is expected to make the chips smaller and more energy efficient by increasing the number of transistors inside the chips.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time the report has detailed that TSMC will start manufacturing chips using the 2nm process in 2025. Wei, while answering questions about TSMC’s 2nm process in October this year, said he was confident the company’s 2nm manufacturing process would enter mass production in 2025. Samsung Foundry and Intel announced that they will mass-produce 2nm-based chips (20 angstroms in Intel’s case) in 2025 and 2024, respectively.
