The USA, Japan both nations agree to Joint Research for Semiconductors: Media Reports

NEW YORK - July 29, 2022 - PRLog -- mailto:rambabu.dixit@digiprima.coJapan and the United States are expected to agree on joint research for next-generation semiconductors to establish a secure source of the vital components during economic talks between allies. The 10th round of trade talks between Tokyo and Washington began on Wednesday with Japanese Trade minister Ichiro Mori and US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross heading the delegations.

In advance of their first round of economic talks Thursday, Japanese foreign minister Yoshimasa Hayashi and trade minister Koichi Hagiuda will meet US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo and Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Washington DC for the first round of economic "two plus two" talks on Friday, with supply chain security expected to be a major topic.

Japan will invest ¥14 billion (about $125 million) over the next five years in a joint research and development center on 2-nanometer semiconductor chips, Nikkei said. The nation's top chip maker, Fujitsu Ltd., said it would cooperate with more than one major industry group to develop technologies for the next generation of chips.

The three companies will create a new semiconductor center in China to help meet the rising demand for semiconductors for mobile devices. The center will include a prototype production line and production of semiconductors should begin in 2025, it added. The agreement to set up the center will be included in a statement to be issued after the meeting, according to sources.

Semiconductors are one of the most complex components in any electronic device. They process information and carry out functions such as sound, light, and reference signals in digital devices. Taiwan produces more than 90 percent of the world's wafers for integrated circuits under a wavelength of 10nm, and thus serves as a key supplier for semiconductor makers including Qualcomm, Intel, and Samsung. If problems arise between Taiwan and China over the island's status with China,  semiconductor companies of Taiwan could be affected.
