TSMC stated in a press release that “this project is of critical, strategic importance to a vibrant and competitive U.S. semiconductor ecosystem that enables leading U.S. companies to fabricate their cutting-edge semiconductor products within the United States”.

The factory will be built in the span of nine years and will be a place where chips will be manufactured on the 5nm process. They can be used in consumer electronics like smartphones, but also in high-end defense systems.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed that TSMC chips will power everything – from 5G base stations to F-35 fighter jets. TSMC is also a major partner of Apple – the company manufacturers the Bionic platforms that power all latest iDevices.
