May 25 news, according to Taiwanese media reports, TSMC is looking for ways to coordinate Qualcomm, MediaTek, AMD, Nvidia and other manufacturers of orders, first move part to Huawei. Taiwan media said TSMC aims to help Huawei produce enough chips within a 120-day buffer period. Because if you don’t, TSMC’s capacity is limited and has always been full of customers. If it’s not coordinated, it’s hard to produce enough chips for Huawei in 120 days.
Once coordinated, with enough capacity to help Huawei produce, it will still be able to produce a lot of chips in 120 days so that Huawei does not cut off supply this year.
