Tesla Books TSMC to Produce 4nm SoCs for Cars: Report

Dan Smith

DigiTimes reports that TSMC has received an order from Tesla to make chips for automakers at its Arizona factory. The foundry will reportedly produce Tesla's advanced self-driving chips in one of its N4 (4nm class) manufacturing processes from 2024. Tesla will reportedly be one of the first and largest customers at TSMC's Fab 21 in Arizona. The report vaguely indicates that Tesla plans to create an "advanced self-driving chip" in his N4, but not what system-on-chip (in the plural he is SoC) it will be. not clarified. Speculation isn't necessarily good business, but it's very likely that Tesla will use the services of his TSMC to create the next-generation fully self-driving hardware 4 SoC.
