At the same time, TSMC has named its previous R&D vice president, Wei-Jen Lo, as its vice president of the Advanced Technology Business. Lo will report to Mark Liu, senior vice president of Advanced Technology Business.

“Dr. Shang-Yi Chiang first joined TSMC as vice president of R&D in 1997, and successfully led the R&D team through the 0.25-micron, 0.18-micron, 0.13-micron, 90-nm, and 65-nm generations,” said Chang in a statement.
