The government of Taiwan approved late last week (Dec. 29) Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg Co. Ltd's (TSMC) application to transfer 0.18? generation semiconductor process technology to China for production.

"TSMC greatly welcomes the government's decision," said TSMC spokesperson and vice president Lora Ho. "The addition of 0.18? process technology to our existing 0.35? and 0.25? process capabilities will help us meet the manufacturing needs of our customers in China, and we believe that we will win more orders and expand TSMC's market share in China."

Ho added that while TSMC will build 0.18? semiconductor manufacturing capacity in China in line with government regulations, the company will also expand investment in Taiwan according to its established plans. These include additional construction of advanced 12-inch wafer fabs, as well as continued progress into leading technologies such as the 65-, 45- and 32nm nodes.
