Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Fujitsu is to reduce DRAM production for both PC and non-PC devices and outsource manufacture to companies in Taiwan. The Japanese company will expand its current outsourcing of DRAM production for PCs. It will also start looking for other companies to make DRAM for non-PC devices, AsiaBizTech newswire reported today. Although it plans to cut down on manufacture, Fujitsu will continue to develop, design and sell DRAM memory. It will also produce a small amount of DRAM for existing PC customers and for non-PC use. For this purpose, Fujitsu has signed a five-year contract with Taiwan’s Worldwide Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. Fujitsu will provide WSMC with production technology and receive 10,000 sheets of 16Mb-256Mb chips per month starting next year. ®
