Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The US government is expected to shortly announce it is imposing anti-dumping duties on memories made by South Korean companies Hyundai and LG Semicon. The tariffs on DRAMs, according to sources close to the discussions, will be 3.9 per cent on Hyundai and 9.87 per cent LG Semicon exported to the US. That follows widespread allegations from US company Micron that South Korean manufacturers were dumping DRAMs into the market below price. Similar allegations have been made against both Hyundai and LG Semicon in Europe, in particular by Siemens. The European Union is understood to be considering anti-dumping levies this month. Hyundai may seek to avoid such levies by increasing production in the US. Reports from Seoul said today that its plant in Eugene, Oregon, had started production of 64Mbit parts, set to ramp to 30,000 wafers a month soon. Hyundai and LG Semicon are still bickering about which will have the majority stake in the merged semiconductor firm they are to create. See SK government gets angry at Hyundai, LG ®
