TSMC returns to full speed operations at Shanghai fab
Semiconductor giant TSMC is once again back to full speed production at its plant in Shanghai.
Due to the explosion of the COVID-19 pandemic in China, Shanghai has adopted a rolling lockdown policy since March and Kunshan City, a major production hub for the electronics industry near Shanghai, has also felt the impact, as previously reported by Evertiq.
TSMC confirmed to the Global Times on Wednesday that its operations in Shanghai back to full speed production, with only 70 percent of the workforce.
When Shanghai went into lockdown, the TSMC plant – which is located in the Songjiang district – implemented a so called closed-loop management between the fab and the dormitory; which is still in affect. Currently the production personnel, and those working from home, cover about 70% of the workforce – which according to TSMC is enough to reach full production.
Selective soldering offers flexibility to the increased demands of soldering on printed circuit boards (PCBs) with mixed components, including through-hole (THT) and surface mount technologies (SMT).
If you manage a mixed-component PCB soldering process, or your aging equipment or PCB designs are pushing the limits of your wave soldering process, consider selective soldering.
