A $1.2bn semiconductor plant, described as the largest in China, has now begun production of 64-bit DRAM devices and will eventually add logic integrated circuits. The factory, a joint venture between NEC Corp and Shanghai Hua Hong Co Ltd, went into product seven months early after the Chinese government, anxious to build the countryÆs semiconductor industry, pressed for early completion of the project. Initially, output at the Shanghai plant will be 5,000 8-inch wafers a month using 0.35 micron design but production will build up to 20,000 wafers a month.
