Winbond to enter GDDR market, exit standard DRAM business

Posted on Thursday, August 06 2009 @ 02:10:32 CEST by

DigiTimes reports Winbond plans to gradually phase out its standard DRAM production. Instead, the memory maker will focus on GDDR memory, it recently entered a production transfer and technology license agreement with Qimonda, and it's rumored that Elpida may soon outsource GDDR production to Winbond.
GDDR will also be one of Winbond's focused product lines, in addition to specialty DRAM, mobile RAM and NOR flash, said Chan. Winbond has seen the combined sales proportion from niche memory reach 50%, followed by standard DRAM with 30% and NOR flash with 20%.

By licensing Qimonda's Buried Wordline technology, Winbond plans to allocate part of its 12-inch capacity to produce GDDR3 and GDDR5, Chan indicated, without elaborating further.

Industry sources have speculated that Winbond along with Japan's Elpida Memory will soon ink a product transfer and technology licensing with Qimonda, which filed for insolvency in January. Elpida will initially outsource GDDR production to Winbond, the sources said.
