A recent United States senate proposal to increase competitiveness with China within the semiconductor industry has raised interest into what the $52 billion infusion of funding could do for the U.S. as a whole. The focus for this bill would be to modernize and upgrade existing semiconductor fabs in the U.S. as well as building
Various government entities have been subsidizing semiconductor chip production around the world to combat the global chip shortage.
The global semiconductor manufacturing shortage has made its rounds in the news in the last few months. Both the tech sector and portions of the U.S. House and Senate have made it a priority to address a lack of research, manufacturing and investing, to combat a massive shortage within the U.S. and worldwide.
The United States is making an effort to become a world leader in semiconductor manufacturing over the next ten years or so, after decades of comparatively slow production growth.
Frigid weather patterns in Texas, combined with a statewide electricity shortage have caused problems for Austin-area production plants. Austin Energy, a publicly owned utility company, has ordered the power off of several area semiconductor manufacturing companies. This includes Samsung Electronics, NXP Semiconductor, and Infineon.

Earlier this month, we reported on the microchip shortage and how it has and will continue to negatively effect auto sales both in 2020 and projections into 2021. Major auto manufacturers have felt the pinch of the global semiconductor shortage in the second half of 2020 and into 2021. Production as a whole has seen
Germany Joins Group of Nations Turning to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co for Increased Chip Production
The global increase in semiconductor chip production in the automobile sector has been a topic of important discussion over the last few months. As we reported last week, many countries are looking to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co to fill their microchip production needs in 2021 and beyond. Not only has increased need for chip production
While microchip production has slowed down US automobile production in the last few months, some semiconductor manufacturing companies are eyeing the outsourcing of some chip production to Asian companies, at least in the short term. Intel, one of the US’s largest manufacturers has been in talks with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co and Samsung in recent
5G, the fifth generation technology for cellular networks, has made news around the world as a game changer for download speeds and bandwidth. Many experts believe not only will it allow cellular users to reach download speeds of 10 Gbit/s, but could even replace internet service providers for mobile computing due to their high speeds
