How AMD managed to increase Fab 30's production capacity

Posted on Thursday, April 20 2006 @ 10:20:02 CEST by

The Inquirer found out how AMD managed to increase production in its Fab 30 to 30k, up from the 20k wafer starts per month it was originally designed for:
A few weeks ago, it announced that it hit 30K, and no one was expecting it, it was as close to exciting as an information-free call can get.

That is where MoTSTOF-NOW comes in. It stands for Move That Sh*t To the Other Fab – NOW!. It seems AMD moved all the storage from 30 to Fab 36 to make room. Since 36 wasn't fully baked yet, or at least fully baking, the stuff was left piled up in the other building.

That left room to actually build more chips, and caught everyone flat-footed. Good job. The presumption is as 36 ramps 65nm, and 30 tails off, you can use the complimentary technology MoTSBTWICF-SOMETIME, or Move That Sh*t Back To Where It Came From – Sometime, and all will be well.
