Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited engages in manufacturing, selling, packaging, testing, and computer-aided design of integrated circuits and other semiconductor devices; and the manufacturing of masks. The company offers a range of wafer fabrication processes, including processes to manufacture CMOS (complementary metal oxide silicon) logic, mixed-signal, radio frequency (RF), embedded memory, BiCMOS (bipolar complementary metal oxide silicon) mixed-signal and other semiconductors. It also offers design, mask making, bumping, probing, and assembly and testing services. Foundry Services Range of Services: The company is able to accommodate customers with various needs at every stage of the overall foundry process. Fabrication Processes: The company manufactures semiconductors using the CMOS and the BiCMOS (which uses CMOS transistors in conjunction with bipolar junction transistor) processes. The CMOS process is the dominant semiconductor manufacturing process. The BiCMOS process combines the high speed of the bipolar circuitry and the low power consumption and high density of the CMOS circuitry. The company uses the CMOS process to manufacture logic semiconductors; mixed-signal/RF semiconductors, which combine analog and digital circuitry in a single semiconductor; micro-electro-mechanical-system, which combines micrometer featured mechanical parts, analog and digital circuitry in a single semiconductor; and embedded memory semiconductors, which combine logic and memory in a single semiconductor. The BiCMOS process is used to make mixed-signal and other types of semiconductors. Types of Semiconductors: The company manufactures different types of semiconductors with different specific functions by changing the number and the combinations of conducting, insulating and semiconducting layers and by defining different patterns in which such layers are applied on the wafer. Logic Semiconductors: Logic semiconductors process digital data to control the operation of electronic systems. The major segment of the logic market, standard logic devices, includes mobile computing chips, application processors, microcontrollers, digital signal processors, graphic chips, and chipsets. Mixed-Signal/RF Semiconductors: Analog/digital semiconductors combine analog and digital devices on a single semiconductor to process both analog and digital data. The company makes mixed-signal/RF semiconductors using both the CMOS and BiCMOS processes. The company offers CMOS mixed-signal process down to the 28-nanometer technology for manufacturing mixed-signal/RF semiconductors. The primary uses of mixed-signal/RF semiconductors are in hard disk drives, wireless communications equipment and network communications equipment, with those made with the BiCMOS process occupying the higher end of the mixed-signal/RF market. CMOS Image Sensor Semiconductors: Image sensors are primarily used in camera phones and tablets. The company is the major foundry for the production of CMOS image sensors, characterized by technology features, including low dark current, high sensitivity, small pixel size and high dynamic range achieved through integration with mixed mode processes. High Voltage Semiconductors: The company offers a range of high-voltage processes, including high voltage CMOS, bipolar-CMOS-Diffusion Metal Oxide Semiconductor, and ultra-high voltage technology, ranging from 5V to 800V, which are suitable for various panel-size display driver and power supply applications. Design and Technology Platforms: Modern IC designers need design infrastructure to optimize productivity and cycle time. Such infrastructure includes design flow for electronic design automation; silicon proven building blocks, such as libraries and intellectual properties; simulation and verification design kits, such as process design kit; and technology files. This is the concept of the company’s technology platforms. Multi-project Wafers Program (CyberShuttle): The company offers a dedicated multi-project wafer processing service that allows it to provide multiple customers with circuits produced with the same mask.
