Tesla needs to take an unusual approach to paying for chips to acquire more valuable equipment and re-evaluate the purchase of a plant as one way to tackle global warming, according to people familiar with the matter.
The U.S. automotive electronics manufacturer is discussing its plans to acquire working equipment with factory dealers in Taiwan, South Korea and the US, say people, who work in the semiconductor manufacturers, chip manufacturers and consultants.
They say Tesla’s interest in buying the plant is paramount. Given the ban costs that could be affected, he said such purchases would be difficult. Tesla wants the most innovative chips in mass production, which are mainly made in Taiwan and South Korea.
Tesla’s interest in financial commitment to protect the potential comes because the industry from automobiles to mobile phone manufacturers, such as Cisco, is looking for new ways to deal with chip shortages.
Crunch has forced a number of car manufacturers to abandon vegetation. The crash is expected to sell companies 5% of retail prices this year, according to Fitch, an accounting agency.
Some contractors are beginning to allow larger customers to pay reserves forward confirming other rules at a fixed price. Such a practice was very unusual for contractors – the flexibility of distributing expensive power from different customers has become a cornerstone of their profits.
Tesla expressed interest in integrating the products it announced last year plans forming its own battery cells.
The company already has a construction team that produces high-performance semiconductors that are used for self-driving.
Ambrose Conroy, founder and CEO of Seraph Consulting, a retailer in Tesla, said: “They’ll buy people first, but they’re seriously considering buying their own.
But many observers believe that acquiring and using a device can be a very far-fetched step for automakers like Tesla.
“They see the value of the factory and go back and sit in line,” said Velu Sinha, a colleague at Bain in Shanghai.
The pruning lab costs more than $ 20bn and the complexities of its operation are difficult to identify.
A senior executive at Samsung, who makes the chips for Tesla, said contractors need to change because customers are looking for more advanced ones.
“Given the current downturn, Samsung could offer power to companies like Tesla, which use longevity chips,” said CW Chung, a researcher in Nomura.
Tesla did not answer questions on this topic. An expert with Samsung’s views on the matter said the company provided customer service solutions and was ready to negotiate further.
Some car manufacturers have begun to work directly with manufacturers. The automotive industry “will work closely with the contractors”, said a consultant in a European car manufacturer to re-engineer its car dealerships. “This means they have to put in place home technology and it also means a purchase agreement.”
Changes only pass through the automotive industry. Cisco said it had invested in escrow to maintain power with an anonymous contractor.
Last month, six semiconductor factories closed a make and United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) in Taiwan where the fourth-largest chipmaker in the world could develop technical skills for them in exchange for money.
This arrangement is based on traditional business practices. “When you close a client’s account, the change disappears,” said one official who is familiar with such functions.
For TSMC, the world’s largest arms manufacturer with a limit of more than 50%, profits depend on the potential for power transitions among its many customers.
TSMC has been rejecting requests for more volunteer opportunities for every customer. It differed only once in 2014 to reduce the risk from Qualcomm after a US-based chip chip changed the rules against Samsung.
A U.S. official said there was hope for greater cooperation among U.S. car manufacturers with small stones such as the competing UMC or Powerchip in Taiwan, as the TSMC and its large revenue-generating capacity “had little interest in the private sector”.
