AMD sells Fab 30 200mm equipment to Russia

Posted on Monday, August 18 2008 @ 13:47:16 CEST by


AMD has sold Fab 30's old 200mm wafer equipment to Angstrem, a Russian manufacturer who previously bought AMD's 130nm equipment.

AMD is currently in the process of converting its 200mm Fab 30 to Fab 38 which will produce 300mm wafers while Angstrem is building a 200mm fab in Zelenograd, near Moscow. German newspaper Sächsische Zeiting heard the sale of the equipment brought in around 132 million euros of revenue for AMD in the second quarter of this year.

AMD Vice President in Russia, Pierre Brunswick, said the U.S. State Department and the EU both agreed to the transfer of technology.

Angstrem CEO Anatoly Soukhaparov said his company received a 815 million euro credit for nine years for the purchase of 200mm equipment and CMOS technology for the fab which will start production in autumn 2009. Angstrem expects to start production of 130nm chips next year and hopes it will receive a 90nm permit from the U.S. State Department in a couple of years.
