Qimonda cuts Dresden production to 25 percent

Posted on Tuesday, February 10 2009 @ 20:58:32 CET by

Insolvent memory maker Qimonda announced it has begun to cut back production at its fab in Dresden to about one quarter of the available capacity. Last week the German memory maker already decided to close its fab in Sandston, Virginia.
"We will reduce wafer starts at Dresden in order to reduce costs and safeguard liquidity. With this liquidity, we intend to expedite the development of our 46-nm buried wordline technology, with which we can achieve market leading productivity and efficiency. The preliminary insolvency administrator and the creditors' committee have agreed to this approach," said Frank Prein, general manager of Qimonda Dresden GmbH & Co. OHG, in a statement.

The reduction of wafer starts will have no immediate effect on deliveries to customers. Unused equipment will be placed in a standby mode and can be ramped-up again at short notice, Qimonda said.
