WD to research flash in Taiwan

New R&D centre

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Disk drive supplier Western Digital is planning a solid state drive (SSD) research and development centre in Taiwan.

Digitimes reports it could be located in Hsinchu and employ some 50 local technicians. It would focus on enterprise SSD applications, and would complement WD's existing R&D centre at its headquarter offices, staffed by 200 to 250 techs.

Recruiting for the Taiwanese centre appears to be ongoing and is set to finish by mid 2013. The centre will look after R&D for the Hitachi GST SSD products. Hitachi GST is being acquired by WD, with the acquisition now cleared by the EU, subject to WD divesting some 3.5-inch disk drive operations. ®
