New factory to deal with the shortage of microchips

There are many problems created by the lack of microchips in the market. It is worth considering how many product categories are completely dependent on the well-known semiconductors, which have currently “disappeared” from the market, creating a “headache” in car manufacturers, smartphone manufacturers and consumers. For this reason, TSMC and Sony decided to join forces in order to reduce the problem.

New production line in Japan

According to Reuters, the two companies are jointly planning to set up a microchip factory in Japan, with the government ready to pay part of the investment estimated at $ 7 billion. Semiconductors will be used mainly in the automotive industry, but also in other product categories such as cameras. The plant is estimated to be able to start production in 2024.

It is noted that TSMC is the largest manufacturer of microchips in the world and is based in Taiwan. It will have control of the new factory, which will be set up on Sony-owned land, near a factory of the Japanese company that produces photo sensors. Of course, so far neither of the two companies has confirmed the relevant publications.
