TSMC, the World's Largest Contract Chipmaker, reported Blowout Revenue for November due in-part to Apple's A16 chip



TSMC, the world’s largest contract chipmaker, on Friday reported a surge in revenue in November thanks in part to orders of semiconductors for high-end smartphones such as Apple’s iPhone.


Dale Gai, semiconductor analyst at Counterpoint Research, told CNBC via email stated that “high-end smartphones” such as the A16 chip for Apple’s iPhone and the latest semiconductor from Qualcomm contributed to the “majority of its (TSMC’s) seasonal strength.”


The Taiwanese firm, which makes chips for other companies, said November revenue totaled 222.71 billion new Taiwan dollars ($7.27 billion), a 50.2% year-over-year rise.
