TSMC is the world’s largest semiconductor foundry, but is facing competition from Globalfoundries and Samsung. Led by 50-year silicon veteran Morris Chang, TSMC still expects growth in the teens this year while other fabless companies forecast 9% growth in 2013.
“It looks like we have another 7 to 8 years ahead in advances -- maybe more -- we can see in technology down to 10 and even 7nm,” said the TSMC CEO Chang.
“Moore’s Law is going to go on and we will be there -- if anyone pursues it, we will pursue it,” he told an audience of several hundred chip designers.
