US CHIP FIRMS INCREASE THEIR COMMITMENT IN JAPAN

The US Semiconductor Industry Association reckons that US chip firms have increased their commitment in Japan by expanding facilities dedicated to manufacturing, circuit design, quality and test there by 68%; increased total employment in Japan by 27%; and added 20% more technical support personnel but still the Japanese won’t buy more US chips: the Association said that talks with its counterpart collapsed last week after the Electronic Industries Association of Japan failed even to acknowledge that foreign semiconductor suppliers could reasonably expect to gain increased access to the Japanese electronics market; the US still holds only about 10% of the market.
