Infineon itself will concentrate on other technologies that it says is not as volatile and unpredictable as DRAM. In the past, other memory companies have done similar things.

In the split, Qimonda will take over several manufacturing facilities related to DRAM manufacturing, including those in Dresden Germany, as well as a facility in Richmond, Virginia. Along with manufacturing facilities, Qimonda will also inherit a Infineon's stake in Taiwanese memory maker Inotera which is a joint-venture between Infineon and Nanya.
