Large wafer factories such as TSMC, liandian, world advanced, and Li Jidian responded to the impact of the earthquake

According to the China Earthquake Network, from 1:06 a.m. to 6 a.m. on March 23, 44 sensible earthquakes occurred successively in Eastern Taiwan, of which magnitude 6.6 and 6.1 occurred at 1:41 and 1:43, with the largest scale, five times above magnitude 5, and more than 10 times above magnitude 4. The epicenter was concentrated near the junction of Hualien County and Taitung County. As an important semiconductor production Town, Taiwan occupies four of the top ten wafer foundries in the world, among which TSMC ranks first, holding a market share of more than 50% in the world.

After the earthquake, the production of semiconductor manufacturers in Taiwan has undoubtedly been highly concerned by the industry, and the above four Fabs have also responded.

・ TSMC said that most of the plant areas did not meet the evacuation standards. Only sporadic evacuations were carried out, and some of the machines were affected. There was no abnormality in the subsequent plant environmental inspection.

・ liandian pointed out that the plant area did not meet the evacuation standard, and some machines were shut down and reopened due to self-protection, which had no impact on the overall performance.

・ world advanced announced that the company's No. 1, No. 2 and No. 5 wafer plants in Hsinchu measured a magnitude of 3. The impact of the earthquake on the company's production is under evaluation.

・ lijidian said that several machines have been suspended automatically. At present, they have returned to the production line one after another. It is expected that they will fully return to normal before noon today. According to the company's assessment, there is no scrap of wafers in the production line, and the shutdown only causes about 0.1 day of capacity loss. In the future, it will be compensated by adjusting the production plan, which has no impact on the revenue of lijic.

According to the report of the plant management unit, only sporadic evacuations were carried out, most areas did not reach the evacuation standard, and a few evacuees have also returned to the line. It is determined that there is no significant impact on production. In addition, the three major science parks in Taiwan also responded. Among them, the Hsinchu Science Park Administration said that the earthquake that occurred in the early morning of this morning, the maximum magnitude of the earthquake in Hsinchu and Miaoli was 4. The park immediately started a special notification line to understand the operation of the manufacturers in the park. The operation was not affected. At present, no disaster has been reported.
