TME strengthens cooperation with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company

In January 2023, Polish distributor of electronical components Transfer Multisort Elektronik announced that it has strengthened cooperation with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (News - Alert) Company. It will bring significant benefits to TME clients worldwide, including shortening the lead time for the TSMC components and increasing the warehouse stock levels, which translates into faster shipping. With time, this cooperation will lead to the TME range being extended to include new diodes, rectifiers, ESD protections, transistors and integrated circuits such as voltage regulators, operational amplifiers and comparators.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company – the history of a semiconductor manufacturer 

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company is one of the largest semiconductor manufacturers worldwide. The company was founded in 1987 by Morris Chang, graduate of the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), who went on to become the CEO of the Industrial Technology Research Institute (News - Alert) in Taiwan. Chang’s goal was to create a company specialised in the production of integrated circuits (ICs) for other companies and operating in the so called "foundry model". 

TSMC began its activities by manufacturing integrated circuits using technological processes with a resolution of 1 micron, which was then gradually increased up to current processes of 5 nm and 7 nm. Throughout the following years, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company became one of the largest semiconductor manufacturers worldwide and one of the main suppliers for many well-known electronics manufacturers, such as AMD, Apple, Qualcomm (News - Alert), Nvidia or MediaTek. The company is also involved in the research and development of new technologies, such as smart integrated circuits, artificial intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT). 

Strong position of the Taiwanese manufacturer 

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company is also known for its strong market position and stable financial situation. In 2020, TSMC recorded top revenue and profits, and its shares are listed on stock exchanges in Taiwan and Hongkong. The company has demonstrated good performance for some time now – its net revenue has also been systematically growing year-to-year in 2021-2022. 

Currently, TSMC is one of the most important suppliers of integrated circuits for consumer, industrial, medical, automotive and aviation electronics industries. The company invests much in the safety and protection of its processes and technologies, which allows to maintain high quality and reliability of its products. It is vitally important, especially for numerous clients from military and industrial sectors. 

This Taiwanese manufacturer is also active in the area of social and environmental responsibility. TSMC is involved in various initiatives, such as environmental protection, community education and development and gender equality.  

Taiwan Semiconductor products at TME  

TME clients can order numerous TSMC integrated circuits, such as comparators, LED drivers and operational amplifiers, as well as LDO (low-dropout) voltage stabilisers. These components are designed for use in the manufacturing of circuits for devices from various fields of application, including consumer and industrial automation, communication, transport or audio/video equipment and white goods. The TME catalogue also includes basic electronic components manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, such as diodes and MOSFET transistors, rectifier bridges, as well as miniature SMD elements, perfect for consumer devices, for example power adapters and chargers.
