Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (tsmc.com) precisely manufactures semiconductors chip and helps multiple companies to boost their performance.

Overview

TSMC was rated as the world’s top silicon foundry that develops semiconductor chips for various companies.

After a long month of delay, finally, tesla reportedly place a huge order of next-generation chips for its fully self-driving car with Taiwan-based chip maker TSMC.

Tesla is the biggest customer of TSMC and places massive orders of semiconduction chips for FSD.

In later 2016, Tesla itself started building semiconductor chips for its consumer vehicles, all chips were designed by legendary designer Jim Keller.

The only reason for tesla to build its own chips builds high-performance, super-powerful, efficient chips for consumer vehicles so, that people do not require additional hardware like customers build autonomous vehicles operated by waymo & cruise.

TSMC is receiving orders for vehicles, and it is reported that it has replaced Samsung and won a large order for Tesla’s new generation of fully automatic driver assistance (FSD) chips, which will be produced at 4/5 nanometers. Tesla is expected to become one of TSMC’s top seven customers next year. It is the first time that TSMC’s main customer has a pure electric car factory, which will help resist the impact of consumer electronics boom adjustments.

While launching a new generation chip, CEO Elon musk announced that tesla is already working on a next-gen chip that is 3X better than the new-gen chip & required two of production.

But till now, so clue come from tesla for a next-gen semiconductor chip, and there have been rumors about Tesla working on the Chip.

The first generation Tesla chip had been working with Samsung to develop a chip for FSD.

TSMC reveals its plan to supply semiconductor next-gen chips to tesla at its factory in Arizona as per the Electrek news.
