In September, the U.S. Commerce Department asked global semiconductor companies to submit chips out of stock for more than a year within 45 days, and now the U.S. says it has more than 150 companies that have submitted chip data, a result they are pleased with.
U.S. Commerce Secretary Raymondo said the more than 150 companies come from multiple regions, including many In Asia, and she has pledged to protect corporate secrets, but only on personal metrics.
Because of the high numbers, it will take several weeks for the U.S. to release its assessment.
November 8th is the deadline for the US Commerce Department to submit a report, after semiconductor giants such as Samsung and TSMC were cautious about submitting confidential data, but had to submit it by November 8th.
TSMC has repeatedly stated, however, that it has long worked actively with and supported all stakeholders to overcome global semiconductor supply challenges, but has not and will not provide confidential data, and TSMC will not provide confidential data, let alone do anything to harm the interests of customers and shareholders.
