The Taiwanese press is reporting that Mosel-Vitelic, a memory manufacturer, is to announce an exchange of technology with Infineon, the recently spun-off Siemens semiconductor unit. As Siemens had some responsibility in helping Mosel-Vitelic to set up, perhaps the deal is not that surprising. The reports suggest that Mosel-Vitelic and Infineon's joint venture, called ProMOS, will be given access to Infineon's .15 and .13 micron process technology which will give the company better yields on memory chips. At present, Mosel-Vitelic uses .20 micron. The advanced processes are likely to start ramping at a 12-inch fab which is scheduled to start production in 2002. ® * Unconfirmed reports say that UMC invested nearly $10 million to take 40 per cent of Trecenti, a JV that is constructing a 12-inch fab in Japan.
