HSINCHU, Taiwan -- Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the world's largest contract chipmaker, said on Tuesday that other customers are ready to step in and fill the gap if the U.S. sanctions force the chipmaker to cut ties with Huawei, its second-largest customer.

TSMC added, however, that is still clarifying the legal ramifications of Washington's latest restriction and stressed that other companies -- including American ones -- will likely be impacted as well.
