ADI Boosts Capacity in New Supply Deal with JASM

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) has made a special arrangement with TSMC, the world’s leading dedicated semiconductor foundry. Particularly, ADI will secure long-term wafer capacity through TSMC-majority-owned Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing, Inc. (JASM).

Recently, JASM celebrated the opening of its new facility in Kumamoto, Japan. Moreover, TSMC’s JASM also announced the construction of a second wafer fab inside the Kumamoto facility.

Supplements Long-Term Capacity

ADI and TSMC have been enjoying more than 30 years of partnership. Thus, the new partnership adds another option for ADI to secure additional capacity of fine-pitch technology nodes. Particularly, to serve critical platforms across its business, including wireless BMS (wBMS) and Gigabit Multimedia Serial Link (GMSL™) applications.

The joint efforts reinforce ADI’s resilient hybrid manufacturing network. For that reason, it helps to insulate external factors while supporting the means to increase output and scale rapidly.

Vivek Jain, Executive Vice President of Global Operations & Technology at ADI said together with TSMC, they can serve customers with more resilient supplies and respond even more rapidly. Moreover, the partnership will be able to meet changing market conditions and enable the company to focus investments on innovative manufacturing solutions.

On the other hand, Sajiv Dalal, Executive Vice President of Business Development at TSMC North America said the latest partnership demonstrates TSMC’s commitment to help customers meet capacity needs. Moreover, Dalal said, “…to expand our ongoing collaboration with ADI will help to ensure a steadfast and dynamic journey of semiconductor innovation with robust manufacturing capabilities.”
