The Taiwanese semiconductor industry was given a rallying call as the Semicon trade show opened in Taipei this week. David Wang, vice president at Santa Clara, California-based chip making equipment vendor Applied Materials Inc, told delegates that the industry had bottomed out and was on the road to recovery. Taiwan would be at an advantage as the upturn gathered pace, he said, because of the country's chip makers and foundries had made an early move to 12 inch wafer production. Taiwan is a center for foundries, to which chip designers outsource their production. Even as Taiwan's foundries have update their equipment, they have been recycling older line to new facilities in China.
