TOKYO/SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics looks to regain full output at its Texas semiconductor plant this summer, one of several major chipmakers recovering from unforeseen disruptions that have amplified the global shortage.

The South Korean company recently restarted the plant in the city of Austin at minimal output to calibrate production processes for normal operations. The facility was forced to shut down in February due to a statewide blackout that resulted from severe winter weather.
