re: TSMC raises capex to record $8.5 billion, pulls in 20-nm

TSMC's nearly 30% net profitability is impressive these days in the hardware industry! I am not at all surprised to see 65-nanometer accounting for 26 percent... not all the products need advanced tech nodes. Further, I would suspect the older technology nodes are also the ones with higher profit margins with better yields. MP Divakar

This is good sign for the fab industry and increased capex only reiterates that TSMC is looking aggressive again after it downsized earlier.

Yes, that is very encouraging sign. Also, Apple may have supported this investment for future Apple processors and other ICs. Development of 20nm will be very challenging.

We are seeing good signs from the industry. I guess we are back to an upturn.

Increased capital expenditure can only mean positive outlook.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
