Nowadays every factory looks like a gigafactory. Tesla chief Elon Musk recently inaugurated a fourth plant under the same name in Berlin. Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory has been in the news for the halt in production due to Corona. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), one of the world’s most important chip manufacturers, has started promoting its plant under the name GigaFab.

Nissan has announced the setting up of a Giga factory in Sunderland, north-east of England. Giga means one billion number. The Oxford English Dictionary describes it as the Greek gigas, gigantic or arbitrarily originated. But it is not necessary that the gigafactory should always produce in billions.

TSMC can produce up to a million silicon wafers per month to make GigaFab microchips. Hence it can also be called hectokilofactory. (Hekaton and Khilioi are actually Greek words for 100 and 1,000.) In this sense, she may use the word giga for her factory.
