National Semiconductor Economic Roadmap

Amidst heightened global demand and a steadily shrinking share of the world’s most advanced microchip factories, the Arizona Commerce Authority joined semiconductor industry leaders and stakeholders to launch the National Semiconductor Economic Roadmap (NSER). The industry-led effort aims to boost U.S. semiconductor competitiveness through a focus on the workforce, supply chain and infrastructure to support semiconductor research and development, design, manufacturing, and end-applications.

For over 40 years, Intel has introduced some of the most advanced, cutting-edge technologies in Arizona, well before they are released to the rest of the world. In fact, Arizona is home to Intel’s largest manufacturing site. In March 2021, the company announced it would invest an additional $20 billion into the state with two new semiconductor fabs.

“TSMC could have picked any place in the world to build this advanced manufacturing factory. They chose Arizona for our unbeatable business climate, already thriving tech sector and ready access to an international supply chain.”

 

- Arizona Governor Doug Ducey

In May 2020, the world’s largest chip manufacturer, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSMC), announced its selection of Arizona for a $12 billion advanced manufacturing facility. The site will utilize TSMC’s 5-nanometer technology for semiconductor wafer

fabrication and have the capacity to produce 20,000 wafers per month.
