Until 2020, TSMC had denied that it would build a fab in the United States, but it announced a $12 billion 5nm chip plant in the United States for a variety of reasons. Now there are rumors that it is preparing to build a second fab in the United States, which TSMC has denied.

In response to rumors that TSMC is expanding plans to build a new plant at its original site in Arizona,TSMC recently said that it is only focusing on the first fab under construction in Arizona and will share further plans in the future.

A few days ago, TSMC's Fab 21 plant in Arizona, the United States, held a girder ceremony.

According to TSMC, about 4,000 TSMC employees and partners attended the ceremony to celebrate the milestone of the 5NM plant, which means that the infrastructure of the plant is almost complete, ahead of installation and commissioning.

TSMC plans to begin mass production in 2024, with the first phase producing about 20,000 wafers a month and focusing on the 5nm process, which will be the most advanced semiconductor process in the US.
