The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

US memory giant Micron technology has filed anti-dumping charges against Taiwan's DRAM manufacturers. The petition, filed with the US Department of commerce and the International Trade commission, claims Taiwanese companies are exporting DRAM to the US at lower than manufacturing cost, and that this is causing injury to US DRAM manufacturers. Micron, that is. Micron has fought long and bitterly against Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese DRAM companies in a succession of anti-dumping actions. Taiwanese DRAM companies currently have a heavy surplus of DRAM (which isn't exactly unusual, today), but claim to be managing it carefully, and deny shipping it out at fire sale prices. But after long years battling forlornly against the Far East, Micron may at last be on the up. It absorbed TI's memory operations earlier this year, and recently won a $500 million investment from Intel. With the old enemies now all desperately short of cash, this is clearly the opportunity for a combined legal and technical assault. ® Click for more stories
