Chip companies all want a piece of TSMC's process for producing next-generation semiconductors. The Taiwanese company has some big decisions ahead.
The Dutch business is the only supplier of the advanced machines needed to make cutting-edge chips, and its dominance is likely to remain unchallenged.
Leading semiconductor manufacturer TSMC failed to meet key sustainability targets last year. Pressure from regulators and customers is needed to make the industry greener.
A lack of crucial semiconductors is causing problems for industries and governments far and wide. Why is there a chip shortage, how can it be solved and when will it end?
The acquisition of NWF by Chinese-owned Nexperia makes commercial sense for both parties, but some are surprised the deal did not provoke a national security investigation.
As a major electronics company predicts another year of shortages, those hoping for a swift resolution to the chip crisis may be disappointed.
The continent wants to grow its presence in the chip market after two decades of decline, but faces an uphill battle.
Europe's digital prowess depends on its core technology businesses staying independent, says Graphcore's Nigel Toon.
As hopes fade for a quick end to the chip shortage disrupting car makers, OEMs that supply the industry will need to take semiconductor supply more seriously.
Neither the US or China is likely to become self-sufficient in semiconductors but global leadership would give either side the edge in the digital economy.
Combined with regulatory hurdles in China, the UK's national security investigation could prompt SoftBank to rethink its sale of Arm to NVIDIA.
The US chipmaker's ambitious plan to take on the manufacturing might of TSMC and Samsung reflects the scale of the challenge it faces.
