Biden Signs Chip Bill, Frees Up Funds for U.S. Production

U.S. President Joe Biden last Tuesday signed a broad competition bill containing about $52 billion to boost domestic semiconductor research and development, calling it a “once-in-a-generation investment in America itself.”

At a signing ceremony for the CHIPS and Science Act on the south lawn of the White House, attended by executives from U.S. semiconductor companies and congressional leaders, Mr. Biden said, “It will cut everyday costs and create jobs. So we need to manufacture these chips here in America.”

Biden said he visited US facilities where Javelin missiles were manufactured and said the bill would force countries to rely on other countries to provide the advanced chips and other products needed for these weapons systems. said to be less.

“Unfortunately, we are producing zero percent of these advanced chips, and China is trying to get far ahead of us in making these advanced chips,” Biden said. rice field.

“No wonder the Chinese Communist Party aggressively lobbied U.S. companies against this bill. The U.S. needs to lead the world in producing these advanced chips. will do.”

China’s foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a news conference in Beijing last Wednesday that the move showed “clear signs of protectionism”. “This will disrupt international trade and distort the global semiconductor supply chain,” he added. “China firmly opposes”

Spurred on by the bill, US semiconductor companies plan billions of dollars in new investments. Ahead of the signing, the White House said Micron Technology Inc. will invest his US$40 billion in memory chip manufacturing and Qualcomm Inc. will partner with GlobalFoundries, which has facilities in New York State, to sign a US$4.2 billion deal. announced. manufacture chips.

Biden joined the signatures of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

overseas dependence

The chip bill aims to reduce reliance on Asian suppliers such as Taiwan and South Korea, allow homegrown companies to lead the market, and help the Biden administration to deal with supply chain disruptions and resulting price increases for certain commodities, including semiconductors. is at the center of the efforts of

Biden’s team and lawmakers underscored the national security implications of the bill, saying it was essential to competing with and countering China.

Most of the federal funding is expected to go to Intel, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (TSMC), and South Korea’s Samsung Electronics, which now have tens of billions of dollars worth of new equipment in the United States. We are building a chip manufacturing facility.

The bill also contains important warnings sought by Republicans and Chinese hawks. Companies receiving funding must commit not to ramp up production of advanced chips in China.

It was a condition made by lawmakers and the White House, and was included in the measure over objections from some chipmakers. Intel, in particular, lobbied hard against the ban. In late 2021, American semiconductor makers wanted to increase production in China, but the plan was rejected by the Biden administration.

China’s semiconductor manufacturing champion, Semiconductor Manufacturing International, can build chips beyond 28 nanometers, but its technology lags industry leader TSMC by at least six years.


The mainland semiconductor research in the United States, because of the common name, “one-time investment in the United States for 100 years”.

“We need crystals manufactured in the mainland of America, hereinafter, the daily production, the opportunity to live in the same way.” The signing ceremony of the addition of the senior manager of the US Semiconductor Company.


Appearance: “Unfortunately, the advanced crystal fragments that crawl together, the ratio of our survival rate is 100%, and the Chinese national standard test transcends our land, and the advanced crystal fragments that crawl through the territory”.

“Unfortunate Chinese Communist Party vs. U.S. Enterprises Rebellion. U.S. Must-Visit Micro-Economical Fragments to Recruit World;

“International trade, parallel global semi-leading system”, multi-majority. On the other hand, he is a staunch opponent.”

In the midst of this downturn, China Semiconductor Corp. is planning to make billions of yuan in new investments. Established factory graded cooperation, consultation manufacturing 4.2 billion beautiful crystal pieces.

The troupe and legislators emphasized the significance of this mutual national security, and the competition and opposition between China and China is important.

The United States has subsidized the majority of the forecasts, including Taiwan Electronics, South Korea’s Samsung Electronics, and Microelectronics.

The requirements put forward by the legislator and the White Palace immediately contradicted some shard manufacturers – especially the ban on English specialties – but the date provided was the content. Growing demand in China, but the plan was rejected by the government.

At the same time, China’s crystal slabs manufacturing is one of the world’s largest crystal slabs, which is 28 million dollars higher than the core international manufacturing, but after the technology failure, the industry leader Yangtai has been at least six years.
