Applied Materials enables semiconductor manufacturers to create more powerful, portable, and affordable chips that are the true engines of the new economy.

As a core information infrastructure company, Applied Materials innovates and commercializes the processing and manufacturing technology that helps semiconductor manufacturers produce the world's most advanced chips. Founded in 1967, the Company has become the global leader in the growing semiconductor equipment industry, growing at approximately 23 percent compound annual growth rate for three decades.

To support customers around the world, Applied Materials employs approximately 12,600 people in over 65 locations throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, Korea, Israel, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and the People's Republic of China.

Founded in 1987, TSMC is the world's largest dedicated semiconductor foundry. As the founder and leader of this industry, TSMC has built its reputation by offering advanced wafer production processes and unparalleled manufacturing efficiency. From its inception, TSMC has consistently offered the foundry industry's leading technologies to its customers.

In 2002, TSMC became the first semiconductor foundry to enter the ranks of the top 10 IC companies in terms of worldwide sales, claiming the ninth spot. TSMC anticipates this trend will continue as the company continues to move up the list for the next several years.

As the first dedicated foundry, TSMC has experienced strong growth by building solid partnerships with its customers, large and small. IC suppliers from around the world trust TSMC with their manufacturing needs, thanks to its unique blend of cutting-edge process technologies, pioneering design services, manufacturing productivity and product quality.

TSMC operates two advanced 300mm wafer fab, five 8-inch wafer fabs, and one 6-inch wafer fab. Fab operations are centralized in Taiwan, primarily in HsinChu Science Park and Tainan Science park. TSMC fabs are also located in Camas, Washington (WaferTech), Singapore (SSMC, a joint venture with Philips Semiconductors), and in Shanghai China.

TSMC's headquarters is located in the Hsinchu Science Park, with account management and engineering services offices in Hsinchu, Taiwan; Yokohama, Japan, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and, in the United States at San Jose, Calif., Orange County, Calif., Austin, Texas and Boston, Mass.

The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) is the premier trade association representing the U.S. microchip industry. SIA member companies comprise 90 percent of U.S. semiconductor production and employ a domestic workforce of more than 284,000. The SIA provides a forum for domestic semiconductor companies to work collectively to advance the competitiveness of the $102 billion U.S. chip industry.

The Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association (TSIA) was founded in November 1996 to meet the growing demand on industrial activities and to promote the cooperation and the development of Taiwan semiconductor industry. Bearing in mind that notable performances in the past does not guarantee long-lasting profit in an ever-advancing industry like semiconductor, the TSIA aims to help the semiconductor industry in Taiwan remains on a competitive edge through various domestic and international activities.

TSIA has over 180 corporate and associate members, including companies engaged in semiconductor R&D, design, manufacturing, packaging, testing, equipment and materials. TSIA regularly organizes and sponsors a variety of domestic seminars and international symposia, exhibition, networking, etc. to strengthen business linkage and broaden business scope for its member companies. TSIA also endeavors to build up constructive relationship between the local industry and corresponding international organizations.

Major international cooperation activities includes the participation of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) efforts since 1998 and the joining of the World Semiconductor Council (WSC) since 1999, demonstrating TSIA's role as the bridge between the semiconductor industry in Taiwan and the global semiconductor community.
