Production of GaN chips for 5G equipment launched in the US
|NXP Semiconductors, a supplier of semiconductor components from the Netherlands, announced the launch of a plant in Arizona (USA) for the production of gallium nitride (GaN) chips used in telecommunications equipment for fifth-generation (5G) cellular networks. |
Currently, us lawmakers are discussing the possibility of allocating multibillion-dollar subsidies to restore the production of chips in the United States. In this regard, the placement of chip production in the United States is becoming more attractive for foreign companies. Moreover, this will reduce import duties to zero.
In may, the world's largest contract chip manufacturer, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), announced its intention to build a $12 billion plant in Arizona that will produce 5-nm chips.
NXP said its new plant in the United States will produce chips from 150 mm diameter gallium nitride wafers. A large industrial complex of Intel Corporation is located nearby (8 km).
