New fab facilities of Powerchip Semiconductor Corp. (PSC), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd (TSMC) and Vanguard International Semiconductor Inc. (VIS) will soon rise at the Hsinchu Science Park in Taiwan, as the three chipmakers were granted permission to commence construction on the last available area, according to the park management.

PSC and TSMC will each build 12-inch fabs, while VIS has yet to reveal if it will set up an 8- or 12-inch facility.

TSMC has informed park authorities that it will begin construction in April 2007. The company expects the acquisition deal to go as planned.

PSC, however, says it is still awaiting notification from the park. The manufacturer is giving a flexible construction schedule as long as it has already secured the land area.
