Intel is trying hard to deploying important strategies to reduce or rather weaken the market space of TSMC’s important customers like AMD and Nvidia
It is a known fact that when it comes to industrial development, every country has its own set of imperfections or shortcomings and for instance, Korea and Japan’s weakness lies in IC design. In the coming years, while designing several logic computing functions on memory SoCs, the biggest hindrance is an imperfect ecosystem coupled with unskilled workforce, which would ultimately make it intricate for these countries to fill the crack of the past era of sophisticated IC design. Even though the IC design sector of Taiwan is improving, a vast majority of its IC design centers are still utilizing mature processes above 28nm, other than a few global firms like MediaTek.
The imperative point to be noted is that more than US$70 million investment is needed for 45nm ventures and Taiwan's important strategy in sophisticated design architecture can only focus on breakthroughs in certain areas. The US based chip firm Intel on the other hand is trying hard to and deploying important strategies to reduce or rather weaken the market space of TSMC’s important customers like AMD and Nvidia and in the coming years, Intel also aiming to reduce the dominance of TSMC to a large extent. Experts claim that for outsiders, it is very intricate to know the sagacity of business management, but this is a genuine competition, which everyone can view.
During the early 1970s, semiconductor technology appeared from various original manufacturer’s own product requirements such as Philips, IBM, Siemens, NEC, and these days car makers in China also wish to and rather publicly stated that they are willing to join the competition league of chipset manufacturing. Not only car manufacturers are willing to make modern and advanced chipset Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Tesla are all crafting mechanisms to systematize their products' for telematics opportunities and AI, and semiconductors are the best possible ways to meet these requirements.
According to an exclusive report of DigiTimes Asia, Tesla, the largest seller of EVs, has done exceptionally well in integration of chips, and also, it has decreased the total volume of MCUs in an EV MCU production from 8-inch fabs to 12-inch ones. The US based Texas Instruments (TI) on the other hand, which produces more than 30 percent of globe’s analog ICs utilizes mostly 45-130nm mature processes with high product differentiation. In fact, TI’s analog IC Inventory has been dwindling for quite a long time and in the coming three years, TI is speculated to construct six 12-inch fabs.
Some experts opined that if some automotive semiconductor firms such as Renesas invest on 5 percent of their revenue and completely depend on UMC or TSMC for their expansion of capacity, then the supply-demand structure might not change in the coming years.
