Japan's Renesas moves more automotive chip production in-house

TSMC and other contract manufacturers overwhelmed with semiconductor orders

Renesas will produce more automotive semiconductors in-house, hoping to avoid delivery delays to customers.

TOKYO -- Japan's Renesas Electronics is fabricating more of its automotive semiconductors in-house as contract manufacturers are swamped with orders, Nikkei learned Thursday.

The switch primarily affects 40-nanometer microcontrollers, as Renesas appears to have lifted the ratio of in-house fabrication for that item. The company did not disclose the scale of the shift.
