FUJITSU-AMD VENTURE GETS SECOND FAB UP AND RUNNING

By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu-AMD Semiconductor Ltd, the joint venture between Advanced Micro Devices Inc and Fujitsu Ltd, announced that it has commenced shipments of flash memory from its second wafer fabrication factory in Japan. Fab 2, on which construction was begun in March 1996, will be producing approximately 6,500 8-inch wafers a week. Initial shipments were 16Mb flash devices, built on a 0.35-micron process technology. By the end of the year, the facility plans to ship its first sub-0.25 micron flash devices. The FASL joint venture was launched in April 1993 to produce jointly-developed non-volatile memory products. The two companies have thus far sunk more than $2bn into it.
