Pretty impressive numbers.
That's roughly $15 billion in yearly revenues which means that only Samsung and Intel is larger (if the comparison make sense, somewhat different businesses).
Does anyone know the percentage of world production i terms of processed wafers that TSMC has? Would be interesting to know.
15 billion is roughly 5% of the total semiconductor revenues. If TSMC production cost is 50% of the end user price then TSMC would have to produce 10% of all wafers in the world to achieve that kind of revenues.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
