TSMC's Silicon Photonics Investment Boosts AI Chip Efficiency for ChatGPT

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) is heavily investing in silicon photonics, combining silicon chips and optical tech to enhance AI applications like ChatGPT. TSMC, the world's top contract chipmaker, aims to improve AI chip performance through silicon photonics, addressing energy efficiency and computing power issues. This technology integrates optics with silicon-based circuits for high-speed, low-power data transmission. Silicon photonics attracts substantial investment across the semiconductor industry, impacting data centers, supercomputers, networking, and more. TSMC is developing integrated silicon photonics systems with advanced chip packaging technology but has not yet entered mass production. The global silicon photonics market is projected to grow to $7.86 billion by 2030.
