The essential guide to IT transformation

Fujitsu and Toshiba are to pool their efforts in DRAM development, the two companies announced in Japan earlier today. According to Japanese reports, the two companies will co-operate in DRAM development from one gigabit upwards, and also intend to cover next generation products, including flash memory. Earlier this year Fujitsu announced the end of DRAM production at its fab in Co. Durham, UK, and in common with other Far Eastern manufacturers has been trying to switch production capacity away from unprofitable DRAM, and towards more profitable logic devices. The Fujitsu-Toshiba deal however signals that, although the collapse of memory prices has hit all of the major Far Eastern manufacturers hard, they still see a long term future for DRAM production. ®
