TSMC announced its plans to build a third chipset fab at its Arizona complex in a bid to meet customer demand focused on 2nm chipsets which are expected to begin production by the end of this decade. The Taiwanese semiconductor contract manufacturer has invested upwards of $65 billion across its fabs in Arizona which accounts for the highest foreign direct investment as a project in U.S. history. TSMC plans to begin manufacturing 4nm chips in Arizona by next year, followed by 3nm and 2nm chips in 2028.
