Exclusive – The 4 billion dollar investment into new Japanese Semiconductors

1 min read

In a significant move to regain its footing in the global semiconductors landscape, Japan has announced an infusion of up to 590 billion yen ($3.89 billion) in subsidies for Rapidus Corporation. This initiative marks a pivotal step in Japan’s quest to catch up with semiconductors giants like Taiwan Semiconductors Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and South Korea’s Samsung Electronics.

Fostering Innovation Through Research and Development

The latest financial backing from Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry underscores a targeted approach towards revitalizing the nation’s semiconductor sector. A substantial portion of this funding, up to 53.5 billion yen, is earmarked for the enhancement of back-end processes such as chip packaging. This strategic allocation of resources is set to propel Rapidus Corporation into the forefront of semiconductor innovation.

The Genesis of Rapidus Corporation

Established in 2022 by the collaborative efforts of the Japanese government and eight domestic corporations, Rapidus Corporation embodies Japan’s ambitious drive to reclaim semiconductors supremacy. Industry stalwarts including Toyota Motor Corporation and Sony Group have played a crucial role, injecting billions of yen to support Rapidus’s mission of advancing semiconductors technology.

Setting the Stage for 2-Nanometer Chip Production

Rapidus’s strategic roadmap features the mass production of cutting-edge 2-nanometer chips by 2027, in Chitose, Hokkaido. With a robust investment of 330 billion yen from the Japanese government, Rapidus is gearing up to challenge the dominance of TSMC and Samsung, both of which are on track to commence mass production of 2-nanometer chips by 2025.

A Leap Towards Semiconductor Leadership

Japan’s concerted efforts to revitalize its semiconductors industry are evident in its comprehensive support for Rapidus Corporation. By significantly reducing the nanometer size in chip manufacturing, Rapidus is poised to deliver more powerful and efficient semiconductors, thereby repositioning Japan as a formidable contender in the global semiconductor arena.
