iPhone Chip Supplier TSMC Urges the Taiwanese Government to Provide Steady Power to Plants
Chairman Morris Chang of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the sole supplier of the key chip for Apple's upcoming iPhones, urged the Taiwanese government Wednesday to provide local companies with a steady supply of electricity. "The government has to offer a conducive environment for companies," Chang told an audience at a local tech industry networking event in Taipei. There was no word of any delays in producing chips for the iPhone. On another front, the Nikkei report stated that TSMC will reveal the site for their new advanced chip plant next year. Rumors back in March indicated that it's not impossible for the plant to be built in the US. For more read the Nikkei report here (Paywall).
