AMD Fab 36 converted to 65nm, yields fine

Posted on Tuesday, July 24 2007 @ 00:35:31 CEST by

AMD recently announced that Fab 36 has been fully converted to 65nm process technology and that it's happy with the yields of its chips, including the upcoming Barcelona.
“Our Fab 36 conversion to 65nm is complete, with yields exceeding expectations and we now turn all our attention to 45nm [transition],” said Dirk Meyer, the president and chief operating officer at AMD, during the conference call.

Originally the world’s second largest producer of x86 central processing units promised to “substantially” convert its Fab 36 to 65nm production technology by mid-2007, which means that full transition to the new manufacturing tech in the middle of Q3 2007 may be an indicator of execution either ahead, or inline with the original plan. Nevertheless, the company now claims that it will slowdown “the ramp” of Fab 38, or the conversion of Fab 30 that operates 200mm wafers into a 65nm fab that uses 300mm wafers, a move that potentially reduces the amount of central processing units AMD can market.

“Overall as a company, our spending levels will decrease going forward and, as a result of outstanding execution in Fab 36, we see the opportunity to further reduce our CapEx plans by slowing the rate of ramp of Fab 38,” said Robert J. Rivet, chief financial officer of AMD.
