About TSC

1. Please use three words to describe TSC.

Dedication, Profession, Innovation.

2. What does the 45th anniversary mean to you?

It is a tremendous achievement for the company to reach the 45th anniversary milestone. It symbolizes the continued dedication of Taiwan Semi to serve our customers as best as possible, in the power semiconductor space. Throughout the years, we’ve had so many wonderful team members that have helped the company achieve the great foundation that we have now. It is a time for gratitude for all of those team members, our customers, our partners, and our suppliers, to allow Taiwan Semi to have this success and milestone today.

3. During your tenure, what is a significant milestone for TSC?

In 2022, we launched our first automotive-grade 40V split-gate MOSFET product. This involved multiple years of technology and product development, to ensure we brought to market a high quality and technically competitive product. We have received very positive feedback from our top-tier automotive customers across their applications, and expect continued strong success across other customers and segments. Additionally, we will also be expanding our Automotive-grade MOSFET products, and will be launching 60V, 80V, 100V products as well.

4. What sets TSC apart from other organizations?

TSC is highly focused on power semiconductors, particularly in automotive and industrial applications. We have early layouts in overseas markets such as Europe and America. Our customer service sets us apart; during the COVID period, we ensured uninterrupted supply by utilizing multiple logistics points globally. For example, if a port is congested, we would choose more expensive air freight without hesitation just to meet customer demands. This reliability and trustworthiness are highly valued by our customers. In terms of products, everything we develop meets automotive standards, and our product portfolio is extensive, providing customers with complete solutions.

5. What is a fun, memorable moment you’ve had at TSC?

In Taiwan, it is customary to have an annual year end party to thank all of employees, suppliers, and partners, and to celebrate the year. In addition to the good food, performances, and bonus drawings, we have also incorporated fun games as well. One year, we brought in a money booth where selected team members can go in for 30 seconds and grab as much cash as they can. The excitement was over the top!
