Infineon and Toshiba are a spit and a handshake away from merging their DRAM production operations.

The official line, following Infineon's admission a month or so back that it's talking to Toshiba, is that they are still talking. But sources close to the German semiconductor company have told EBN/I> that the two are on the verge of a deal.

So close is the merger agreement, the sources said, that Infineon's personnel department is already drawing up strategies to combine the two companies' workforces.

Toshiba announced in August that it was considering selling off its loss-making memory business or merging the operation with another company. At the same time, Samsung admitted that the Japanese manufacturer had been touting its memory business to not only itself but other "ranking DRAM makers around the globe". Days later, Infineon said it too had been approached by Toshiba. ®
