Information

Since the night of September 17, earthquakes of magnitude 6.5 and 6.9 and many aftershocks have occurred successively in Taitung County and Hualien County of Taiwan, China.

As we all know, Taiwan, China is a major production center of the global semiconductor industry. The main wafer fabs are located in Hsinchu, Taichung, Tainan and other places, and the earthquake intensity of some of the factories is up to 4. The Southern Science and Industrial Park Administration of the Ministry of Science and Technology of Tainan said that an earthquake of magnitude 4 or above may affect the process of wafer manufacturers in general.

Especially when some chips, mainly automotive-grade chips, are still in short supply, the earthquake has attracted great attention from the outside world.

In this regard, according to the survey of TrendForce Jibang Consulting, a market research organization, most semiconductor factories have earthquakes of magnitude 3-4, so they will basically stop for inspection and then resume work. So far, no semiconductor factory has been seriously impacted by the earthquake, and it has resumed normal operation one after another.

In addition, TSMC and UMC also made relevant responses.

TSMC, the leading foundry manufacturer, said that after the earthquake, the company had evacuated some dust-free rooms personnel in the southern factory (Tainan Science Park) as soon as possible in accordance with internal procedures to ensure safety, and the industrial safety system was normal.

Another wafer foundry, UMC, also pointed out that due to the earthquake, a few machines in Hsinchu factory started the self-protection mechanism, which has been restarted, and all the personnel are safe. The internal operation is in accordance with the standard procedures, and the others have no significant impact.

At the same time, according to the Administration of Science and Technology of China, after investigation, the earthquake in the park was about magnitude 3, including TSMC, AUO, Micron, SPIL, Corning and other big factories, all of which reported their safety one after another, and there was no disaster.
