Good to see Taiwan and Japan working together.

TSMC should watch out. Only reason for this is to steal superior technology from Taiwan, just like Japan stole camera technology from Germany, and electronic technology from the US.

I will bet that this would also end up as a failure just like Japan Display did, since Japanese leaders are hopeless with decision making.

You might wanna take that statement back if you read about how TSMC rose dude.

It's 2021. Not 2011. Get over it.

Taiwan is also helping to build a new semiconductor plant in the US, but it will be awhile before it comes online.

What TSMC is building in Japan is a 20 nm fab, nothing cutting edge but good enough for Japan's embedded chip makers. There is no use for cutting edge 5 nm and 3 nm processes in Japan because Japanese chip makers have no use.

What TSMC is building in the US is the cutting edge stuff, because of demands from US customers like Apple and AMD. Ditto for Samsung, which is building the latest $20 billion 2nm fab in the US to serve customers like IBM, nVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Tesla.

Anyway, the worst is over for the Japanese semiconductor industry. Gonna be interesting to see how things are going to be from now on.
