I too wonder why NY state and not Maine, Vermont, Texas, Idaho. All these are possible locations with some talent and low costs. If NY state has deeper pockets that allow better incentives then that would make sense. I would think that there has to be cheaper locations (worldwide) so it must be more than cost driven, most likely politics and incentives.
Everything is not about cost, if that was the case, probably Africa would be good for starting this. Recently, there was an announcement of NY state funding for 450mm wafers in upstate NY. This being a joint venture with the top semiconductor companies, it makes sense why TSMC is interested in upstate NY. Second reason, what about shrinking design rule's manufacturing challenges? We are talking few 100s of atom layers now! Where do we get the talent?
Upstate colleges offer programes which are very attractive for semiconductor business. Some one should think why this counter intuitive..
Lastly, for India..wait for the anti-corruption bill to be fully functional, I am recording the date to and happy to prove myself wrong if it happens in the near future.
Honestly, I doubt this. TSMC already owns several acres on which their WaferTech LLC Subsidiary operates in Washington state. They own enough land and have enough energy and water infrastructure on the campus to set up another fab. Not to mention the entire industry from wafer manufacturing, design and engineering, tool vendors, and shipping/freight is already in place. With local universities setting up programs for, or already putting out thousands of engineers a year there is an abundance in the area of skilled workers. There are better and cheaper options then setting up a new fab in New York.
That is interesting that TSMC would put a fab in New York. Seems like they would be better off putting it in a place like Austin or Dallas that has the engineering talent and a much lower cost of living.
