TSMC claimed that supply-chain inventory constraints hurt its net profit in the third quarter, although not as badly as many analysts had predicted.
Leaving in June
TSMC said its founder and chairman, Morris Chang, will retire in June – to be fair he is 86.
TSMC is to make 70 to 80 percent of Qualcomm's new-generation power management ICs (PWM IC).
Back to its Mid-market roots
MediaTek has just announced its latest addition to the Helio family with two new octa core Helio P23 and P30 CPUs, both at 16nm from TSMC.
Chinese dragon could take Chipzilla
Not everyone is mourning the slow death of Moore’s Law and Chinese chipmakers could use the period to catch up with their Western rivals.
Clock is tocking not ticking
The upcoming Geforce GPU architecture will be more incremental than revolutionary as Nvidia appears to be using Intel’s tick-tock strategy.
Will make baseband chips produced on its 7nm process
TSMC has regained some chip orders from Qualcomm for baseband chips produced on its 7nm process, but not application processors.
No interest in making America grate again
Any idea that TSMC was going follow Foxconn or Japan's SoftBank and set up a foundry in the US has been dashed.
Nvidia, MediaTek, Silicon Motion and HiSilicon for now
TSMC has just landed several chip orders for its 12-nanometer half-node process, a smaller version of its existing 16nm FinFET technology that will allow it to compete against Samsung and GlobalFoundries at a lower cost than its existing lineup.
