TSMC is Having Capacity Problems

Digitimes: TSMC is seeking additional capacity backup from memory maker Powerchip Semiconductor Corporation (PSC), amid tight capacity, according to industry sources.
TSMC mainly fabricates CMOS image sensors at its Hsinchu Fab 7, but the strong orders from Omnivision and Avago have already absorbed all available capacity at this fab, the sources indicated. TSMC now outsources some of its CMOS image-sensor orders to PSC's 8-inch fabs, to fulfill demand, the sources added.
A few days ago Avago announced it extends its agreement with TSMC to include the next two generations of its enhanced-performance (EP) image sensor products (Yahoo-Finance).
