According to the resolution of TSMC’s board of directors, it was approved to increase capital in Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (JASM) by no more than US$5.262 billion.

According to TSMC’s official website, on February 6, TSMC issued an announcement stating that according to the resolution of TSMC’s board of directors, it was approved to increase capital in Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (JASM) to an amount not exceeding US$5.262 billion. In addition, it was approved to increase the capital of 100%-owned subsidiary TSMC Arizona in an amount not exceeding US$50.

It is reported that the JASM Kumamoto wafer fab will start construction at the end of this year and be put into production in 2027. The total monthly production capacity is expected to exceed 100,000 12-inch wafers, and it will also be able to provide 6/7nm process technology. At this point, "Kumamoto Factory II" has officially come to the stage. After a new round of investment, TSMC will hold 86.5% of JASM's equity, while Sony, Denso and Toyota will hold 6%, 5.5% and 2% respectively. Equity. With the support of Japanese government subsidies, JASM's total investment amount will also rise to 20 billion US dollars.

The announcement shows that TSMC’s “Kumamoto Factory II” will also further improve Japan’s domestic semiconductor process. Before TSMC invested in Japan, the most advanced chip technology the country could produce was only 40nm. The Kumamoto factory, which will be put into production within the year, has a planned production capacity of 55,000 12-inch wafers per month, using 22/28nm to 12/16nm processes.
