In this request, the attitude of TSMC is particularly attached, because they are the world's largest wafer substitute, and the process is also the most advanced, mastering the secrets of apples, AMD, Gao Tong, NVIDIA, etc., there are many domestic Chip design companies are also dependent on TSMO, so very sensitive.
Intel, SK Hercules, Yingfine, etc., is committed to submitting relevant data in schedule within 45 days.TSMC dragged yesterday, indicating that the relevant information will be submitted to the United States before the deadline on November 8.
