Zhang Zhongmou: AI demands not millions of pieces of production capacity, but more fabs

TSMCJapanKumamoto factory JASM opened today, and founder Zhang Zhongmou personally participated. He said that the semiconductor industry will definitely have greater demand in the future.AyePeople told him that there is a need for not only tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands and millions of wafer production capacity, but also more wafer fabs, 3, 5 or even 10 wafer fabs.

Zhang Zhongmo said that those who do not fully believe in artificial intelligence (AI), but to some extent, taking the average value between thousands of wafers and 10 wafer fabs, should find the answer.

Zhang Zhongmo said that he attended the opening ceremony of JASM today and was full of pride and enthusiasm. He couldn’t stop himself from remembering his first visit to Japan in 1968. He was the vice president of Texas Instruments at the time, responsible for the IC industry. He went to Japan to promote the joint venture between TI and Sony and met Sony founder Akio Morita.

Zhang Zhongmou said that Akio Morita was already a veteran at that time and was 10 years older than him. During the two-hour conversation, Akio Morita was very cordial. The two of them jointly promoted the joint venture between Dayei and Sony. Akio Morita told them that the future is in the future. Japan’s impressive results will surprise them.

Zhang Zhongmo built a factory in Jiugaya City on behalf of Daiei, and established a wafer fab in Oita County in 1973. Morita Akio’s prediction came true, he said, so Texas Instruments took a big step in 1980 and built a wafer fab in Miho, near Narita Airport; But after leaving Texas Instruments he sold the factory.

Zhang Zhongmo said that in 1985, he saw many similarities between Taiwanese and Japanese talents, and in 1987 built a wafer factory in Taiwan, which is TSMC. After 50 years of conversation with Akio Morita, I am very eager to get results in Japan. There will be more challenges this time in Japan, but I am still looking forward to fruitful results and hope that JASM can bear fruit.

He said TSMC received an invitation to open a wafer fab in Japan in 2019. He was very happy to transform ideas into concrete actions over the last five years. He believed that JASM would be able to further improve the flexibility of the wafer supply chain. and contribute to the Japanese semiconductor industry. Bringing a new wave of revival.

Zhang Zhongmo said that there will definitely be greater demand for semiconductors in the future. Currently, the manufacturing capacity of thousands of wafers already exists, but in the next few years, with the help of artificial intelligence, we will definitely see the mass production of millions of wafers. Of production capacity.

Zhang Zhongmo said that he recently discussed the required production capacity with AI-related people and was surprised and happy. What is needed is not thousands, tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of pieces of production capacity, but more wafer fabs, 3, 5 or even 10 fabs; He doesn’t fully believe in people with artificial intelligence (AI), but to some extent, taking the middle value, the answer should be found between thousands of wafers and 10 fabs.
