TSMC to Build Up to Five Additional Fabrication Plants in Arizona [Report]

In May 2020, TSMC announced that it would build a $12 billion fabrication plant in Phoenix, Arizona with support from the Trump Administration. Three sources now tell Reuters that is just the beginning and the company is planning up to five additional fabs at the same location.

One source said the expansion comes at the request of the U.S. government. Another source said TSMC made sure there was enough room for expansion when they obtained the land. The third person, from a TSMC supplier, said they were told the plan was to build six fabs over three years.

The initial 12-inch wafer fabrication plant is expected to start production in 2024. It has a planned output of 20,000 wafers every month using the company’s 5nm process.
