Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC), incorporated on February 21, 1987, is a semiconductor foundry. The Company is engaged in the manufacturing, selling, packaging, testing and computer-aided design of integrated circuits and other semiconductor devices and the manufacturing of masks. The Company operates through foundry segment. The foundry segment engages mainly in the manufacturing, selling, packaging, testing and computer-aided design of integrated circuits (IC) and other semiconductor devices and the manufacturing of masks.
The Company operates three 12-inch wafer fabs, four eight-inch wafer fabs, one six-inch wafer fab (fab 2) and two backend fabs (advanced backend fab 1 and 2). The Company also manages two eight-inch fabs at its subsidiaries, WaferTech, LLC in the United States and TSMC China Company Limited. The Company's exploratory work focuses on transistors and technologies, such as three dimensional (3D) structures, strained-layer complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), high-mobility materials and 3D IC devices. The Company's services include Grand Alliance, Open Innovation Platform, Service Guide, Design, CyberShuttle, Mask Services, TSMC Backend Services and eFoundry. The Company's mask service is the interface between designers and its fabs. Mask services are linked and synchronized between its manufacturing facilities through a computer integrated management (CIM) system. The Company's eFoundry services are a suite of Web-based applications that provide a role in design, engineering and logistics. TSMC-Online is the foundry delivery system to enable secure online business transactions and information transfer for creating product design, tape outs, and wafer tracking. TSMC-Direct is a service that enables system-to-system integration between TSMC and its business partners using third party software. The Company has developed a centralized fab manufacturing management system, Super Manufacturing Platform (SMP).
TSMC-Supply Online is a Web-based service center and an open collaboration platform for TSMC suppliers. It enables functions of new supplier registration, qualification, forecast, supply chain inventory visibility, quotation, purchasing orders processing, quality collaboration, shipment confirmation, and payment status inquiry for suppliers that transactions or supply chain information may be managed in real time through a business-to-business (B2B) interface.
