TSMC created the semiconductor Dedicated IC Foundry business model when it was founded in 1987. In 2022, TSMC served 532 customers and manufactured 12,698 products for various applications covering a variety of end markets including high performance computing, smartphones, the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive, and digital consumer electronics.
Annual capacity of the manufacturing facilities managed by TSMC and its subsidiaries exceeded 15 million 12-inch equivalent wafers in 2022. These facilities include four 12-inch wafer GIGAFAB® fabs, four 8-inch wafer fabs, and one 6-inch wafer fab – all in Taiwan – as well as one 12-inch wafer fab at a wholly owned subsidiary, TSMC Nanjing Company Limited, and two 8-inch wafer fabs at wholly owned subsidiaries, WaferTech in the United States and TSMC China Company Limited.
In December 2022, TSMC announced that, in addition to TSMC Arizona’s first fab, which is scheduled to begin production of N4 process technology in 2024, the Company has also started the construction of a second fab which is scheduled to begin production of 3nm process technology in 2026. At the same time, the Company continues to execute its plan for a fab in Kumamoto, Japan, with production targeted for 2024.

National Taiwan University
The Best University in Taiwan.
Since its establishment, NTU has been the leader of higher education in Taiwan and has faced and tackled a variety of challenges on the path toward excellence. Prevailing adaptability and resilient tenacity have refined our esteemed institute to be steadfastly eminent and estimable.
However, NTU must preemptively address the myriad of challenges that have arisen in recent years, such as recruitments of talents, pedagogical reforms, innovations in research, and competitions for worldwide standings. To hone NTU’s competitive edge in research and education, and to avoid unpredictable marginalization in the global arena, we are committed to the following: enacting comprehensive internationalization, elevating research and development capacity, establishing unimpeded enrollment venues for the underprivileged, and effectuating innovations in both learning and teaching. With these efforts, we aim to make strides and bring the prestige of NTU to a new height at the University’s centennial in 2028.
About NTU - National Taiwan University
As our city has developed from Dayuan, to Anping, to Fucheng, to Tainan over the last 400 years, – it has always been diverse and outward-looking. In the 85 years since our school’s founding, its identity has evolved too: from Tainan Technical College in 1931, to Taiwan. Provincial College of Engineering in 1946, Taiwan Provincial Cheng Kung University in 1956, and National Cheng Kung University in 1971. Named after Zheng Chenggong (Koxinga), a heroic pioneer of Taiwan’s development, NCKU’s history has been closely bound up with the changes that have affected our nation and society. While training countless talented students, the school has grown symbiotically with the city of Tainan, staying in touch with the pulse of society and forging links throughout the world. Four hundred years ago, people from afar came to Anping, Tainan, and now NCKU is reaching out from this historic city as a university with a pragmatic academic climate, solid research strengths, an internationalized learning environment, interdisciplinary innovation, effective academia–industry cooperation and a pragmatic approach to issues – a school that is able to actively exert a positive influence in different sectors in Taiwan and also embrace the world. For the future, NCKU aims to be a university that is the pride of Taiwan and an inspiration to Tainan, an institution that our partner schools respect and are happy to work with. NCKU is positioned as a university of global importance that develops high quality, well-rounded citizens.
