by Zeeshan Akram

Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, joined other US leaders in applauding TSMC’s plan to invest $40 billion to make advanced chips in Arizona. The Taiwanese company that makes chips wants to build the most advanced place in the world to make 3-nanometer chips. This will create thousands of jobs and bring the state about $3 billion yearly in wages, taxes, and capital spending.

TSMC the world’s largest contract chipmaker, has announced it is investing significantly more than initially planned to build a second fabrication plant that will produce 3nm chips. TSMC plans to invest $40 billion over four years, almost triple the initial investment of $12 billion they initially announced.

The new facility is expected to be operational by 2026 and will help meet the increasing demand for 5G infrastructure and mobile devices with high-end processors and graphics cards.
