  The Amazing Race Australia set to go global after Covid-19 pandemic The Amazing Race is going global again. Channel 10 released a new trailer for the upcoming season on Sunday with teams making their way around the world. The new format is in stark contrast to its Australia-only version which aired last year due to global coronavirus lockdowns. © Provided by Daily Mail The Amazing Race Australia is set to go global again after the series was forced to film in Australia due to coronavirus restrictions.

deficiency and no end: The manufacturer Globalfoundries therefore starts production in Europe. The Dresden plant should also produce significantly more wafers.

The semiconductor manufacturer Globalfoundries (GF) gives up production in Europe in view of a global chip lack.

After around 300,000 Wafer left the Dresden work in 2020, it should be 700,000 and at the end of 2023 around 850,000, as managing director Manfred Horstmann announced on request: "We produce more because the need for semiconductors is so high."

The US chip manufacturer Intel hopes for an early start next year when building his new semiconductor works in Magdeburg.

Globalfoundries Will More than $ 1 billion invests

over a period of three years, significantly more than one billion US dollars will be put into the expansion of the German work.

How the chip deficiency has arisen-and how it can be overcome

Experts expect the chip deficiency to stop until at least 2024. At the location of the French chip manufacturer Stmicroelectronics in the Grenoble area, which is supposed to bring an additional emission of 360,000 wafers a year.

The car industry in particular is hungry after chips, it said. While around 60 to 70 of them were previously installed in a car, they are now several hundred.

Michigan governor says state is well positioned for piece of $52 billion in chip manufacturing subsidies

  Michigan governor says state is well positioned for piece of $52 billion in chip manufacturing subsidies Michigan;s Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says that her state is in a good position to get a piece of the $52 billion in new subsidies for semiconductor chip manufacturing."The state of Michigan is uniquely positioned," Whitmer told Reuters in an interview. "We want to make sure that our potential partners in this chips manufacturing moment are ready to move as fast as we are because we are going to have to move together.

This is related to the switch from burners to electric cars. The demands of the buyers have also changed over the years. "Cars are driving computers today," said Horstmann. The emission of chips for the automotive area grow by 15 to 16 percent each year. At the end of next year you would make up a sixth of the overall production in Dresden.

"As a Saxon capital, we have to keep and expand our European top position in semiconductor production by supporting further investments by the semiconductor manufacturers," said the FDP member of the Bundestag Torsten after a visit to GF. The extensive investment plans from Globalfoundries and other manufacturers at the Dresden location would mean an enormous opportunity.

“In the federal budget and at European level, billions of euros are available for the expansion of the semiconductor production. However, Germany has to become much faster in the decisions for the financial support, otherwise we will lose key investments to Asia or the USA, ”said Herbst. It is in the national and Saxon interest that the chipport by expanding domestic chipport by the expansion of domestic chipfighting is independent of Asian production locations.

more than 3,300 people finished semiconductors in Dresden

GF claims around 300 customers worldwide, the Dresden plant alone around 120. With a clean room area of ​​around 60,000 square meters, it is the largest semiconductor work in Europe.

more than 3,300 employees work here. They not only produce chips for the automotive area, but also for products such as smartphones as well as applications in the areas of cyber security, mobile banking and 5G technology.

Dem Rep. Kathy Manning scooped up thousands in chip company stock one day before voting to pass CHIPS Act .
Democratic Rep. Kathy Manning purchased thousands in semiconductor company stock just one day before the House approved legislation providing massive subsidies to the sector.Manning and her husband purchased up to $30,000 in Micron Technology stocks and up to $95,000 in Nvidia stocks on July 27, the new disclosures show. The next day, Manning voted to pass the CHIPS Act, which will help expand semiconductor manufacturing facilities in the United States while providing the industry tens of billions of dollars in subsidies.
