The past five years were rough for Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), the world's largest manufacturer of x86 CPUs for PCs and data centers. It fell behind Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE: TSM) and Samsung in the "process race" to create smaller and more advanced chips, and its constant delays and chip shortages resulted in massive market share losses to AMD (NASDAQ: AMD). Intel also abandoned the mobile market by scrapping its smartphone chips and baseband modems, and it made scattershot investments in programmable chips, Internet of Things (IoT) chips, and automotive chips -- none of which resolved the company's core problems.
TSMC does not expect the incident to have significant impact on operations, it said in an emailed statement to Reuters.
Apple Inc's chip supplier Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co said on Friday that some of its production lines in southern Taiwan were hit by a contamination of gases used in the chipmaking process. TSMC does not expect the incident to have significant impact on operations, it said in an emailed statement to Reuters. "To ensure that there will be no issues with production quality, TSMC is currently carrying out stringent follow-up operations," the company added.
