Chip Scarcity is a real problem today, and if the company doesn’t manufacture their semiconductors, it will suffer because the shortage is real. But that’s not the main reason why Apple, Facebook, Google, Tesla and other companies got into the semiconductor business in the first place.

There has been a severe epidemic and dependence on internet-enabled devices such as computers, laptops, smartphones, smart watches, smart televisions and more has increased. That means the manufacture of these devices should boost their game, and so does everything in it.
It needs a brain, or so-called central processing unit, or CPU chips to power these devices. Without it, the device could not work. And these chips and other components are afacing a crisis in stocks nowadays, something that almost all industries suffer from.
This has resulted in some companies focusing solely on building their chips, which are design-oriented or some have manufacturing capabilities. Many of these companies include Big Tech and have the tools and methods to focus on it and thrive despite the scarcity.
Again, CNBC He said one of the main reasons Big Tech produced its chips was to bring certain programs into the company’s products for better integration.
Since Apple first introduced its smartphones and devices to the public, it has largely been attributed to chip design. It is widely known that iPhones already use it. A series silicon chipshas become popular with the public.
However, its latest version Apple Silicon SoC known as M1 It was the turning point of the company and made them a strong name in the industry. Now their computers are migrating from Intel to M1 and this is in partnership with TSMC.
Apple now brings its proprietary software or programs that will pair well with the silicon chipset that powers its devices. M1-specific software works best with the new chip, as explained by Apple.

Google is the latest competitor and company on this list now Tensor chips for the Pixel smartphone. Now Qualcomm is outpacing Snapdragon and will move forward with the Silicon SoC design.
Tensor promises the best integration into the Pixel phone, which includes Android, which Google also designed for smartphones. Tensor ships with the Pixel 6 released this fall.

Tesla is known to be an avant-garde company and they do not meet societal standards for vehicles. It is also known to design the chips it uses for the advanced features and functions of its EVs, specifically for electric cars. Neural Network, FSD, Autopilot, and more.
The clean energy company’s design fits the vehicle best and offers a unique experience for its users.
