According to insiders, TSMC is now considering building a foundry in Dresden, Germany.

The source revealed that TSMC has not ruled out the possibility of expanding the second phase of the plant in Arizona, and is also considering building a new fab in Germany.

In order to explore the possibility of building a new fab in Germany, TSMC will send a delegation to Dresden, Germany, one of the important semiconductor bases in Europe, in October.

Dresden is a cluster of fabs for European automotive products, and chip companies including Bosch, NXP, GF, and Infineon have set up factories there.
