Yelanand. Good question. But I am not sure what TSMC is using TEL's tools for. It could be dielectric etch. I'm not sure. In any case, it's difficult to replace a qualified tool in a fab.

Mark, Just wondering what other alternative it has ? Whom can TSMC approach instead of Tokyo Electron Limited (TEL) ?

This is consistent with what many analysts estimate. But uptick will cover any lost demand in the near long term
