Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd's wholly-owned solar module subsidiary, TSMC Solar Ltd, has received certifications from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for a range of its copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) PV modules.

TSMC Solar modules with nominal power of up to 130W are now listed on the California Energy Commission's list of compliant PV modules, the company said. TSMC Solar's CIGS series modules entered production this month, with customer shipments expected to begin in April, the company added.

"UL and IEC product certifications open the majority of the world's solar markets to TSMC Solar products," said Ying-Chen Chao, president of TSMC Solar, in a statement. "We are also making rapid progress in acquiring the individual market and special purpose certifications required to compete in solar markets worldwide."

TSMC Solar's CIGS PV modules are being produced at TSMC Solar's manufacturing facility in Taichung, Taiwan. The facility has received ISO 9001 quality management system certification.

"Our team has done an outstanding job to rapidly achieve these important milestones less than four months after completing tool move-in," Chao said. "TSMC Solar is pleased to have third-party verification of its ability to leverage its parent company's quarter century heritage of delivering technology innovation, quality and manufacturing excellence."
