Technology companies with factories in Taiwan, ASML Holding and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, want to ensure that their chip-making machines do not fall into Chinese hands if it invades the island. Both companies have ways to deactivate these machines, the most sophisticated in the world, when this situation arises, and they will do it remotely. As Bloomberg reports exclusively, the remote shutdown will apply to Netherlands-based ASML’s line of UV machines, whose largest customer is TSMC. This technology takes advantage of high-frequency light waves to print the world’s smallest transistor microchips used in artificial intelligence and military applications.
