TSMC has said it suffered from a gas contamination leak where it manufactures chips for Apple. It has rectified the issue and shouldn't cause a big impact but it needs to perform follow-up checks.

The industry is currently struggling with a global chip supply crisis but Goldman Sachs' Andrew Tilton believes that things will soon be better as we move into the second half of the year.
The world's largest contract chip manufacturer has announced the development of a new material that is more efficient than silicon and will one day enable the production of 1-nanometer chips.
A new report suggests that Apple is working with chipmaker TSMC on developing ultra-thin micro OLED displays - along with Micro LED displays - for use in form factors such as AR glasses.
The Taiwanese semiconductor company began its 26th Technology Symposium today by talking about its forthcoming processor technologies, and revealed that 3nm process nodes are coming in 2022.
Huawei has confirmed that the Mate 40 series will be the last flagship smartphone from the company to feature a high-end Kirin processor when it debuts later this year due to the U.S. export ban.
A leaked roadmap suggests that Qualcomm could be readying a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 875G SoC built on Samsung 5nm EUV node. The roadmap also hints at the release timelines for some MediaTek SoCs.
Huawei has cut down on component orders to its suppliers as it looks to delay the launch of the Mate 40 series this year by 1-2 months following a supply chain disruption due to the U.S. export ban.
At Huawei's annual analyst summit, the company's rotating chairman Guo Ping has hit back at the U.S. government for the export ban and said that the company's survival is at stake due to the move.
TSMC has stopped taking new orders from Huawei. It would still be supplying the company with the chips for the orders that it had taken before the ban provided they could be shipped by Sept.
China has asked the United States government to stop being unreasonable following the latter's attempts to prevent Huawei buying chips from international firms such as Taiwan's TSMC.
The U.S. Commerce Department has amended an export rule to "strategically target Huawei's acquisition of semiconductors that are the direct product of certain U.S. software and technology."
Samsung will be fabricating Qualcomm's recently announced Snapdragon X60 5G modem on its 5nm foundries. It won't be the sole manufacturer though, with TSMC also fabricating the chip in its foundries.
AMD has announced it will work with TSMC to produce its 7nm chips, while GlobalFoundries says it will stop working on 7nm technology due to high cost and inability to keep up with competitors.
7nm EUV production is slated for 2H-2018; 5nm and 4nm nodes are on track for production in 2019 and 2020. 3nm node is being developed using Gate-All-Around Field-Effect Transistor (GAAFET) technology.
The next-generation chips for new iPhones, supposedly called the A12, will use a 7-nanometer design for more efficiency than existing processors, enabling devices to run apps faster and last longer.
TSMC has been in the news a lot lately, and for all the right reasons. In addition to the usual suspects, Chinese chip manufacturers are set to tap TSMC's 7nm process for their next-gen AI chips.
Wafer-on-Wafer tech could lead to faster GPUs with high-speed, low-latency interconnects; 7nm node hits volume production; 7nm+ node and 'risk production' on 5nm node on track for H1-2019.
Samsung has reportedly kicked off the manufacturing phase for a hardware product intended for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining as part of its contract with TSMC Taiwan, a provider of mining tools.
According a recent report, models of the iPhone have different versions of the A9 chip powering them, produced by either Samsung or TSMC. The Samsung version apparently leads to lower battery life.
According to a new report, Samsung managed to snatch another of TSMC's big clients. The South Korean company will build Qualcomm's upcoming high-end processors, the Snapdragon 820.
According to a new report from South Korea the two companies will once again work together, with Samsung pegged to ship 75% of the chips Apple needs for its next generation of iPhones.
In what could be the start of a monumental partnership, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company has delivered its first shipment of microprocessors to Apple.
