Toshiba logic chipset unit to outsource its production

Posted on Friday, December 24 2010 @ 14:30:09 CET by

EE Times reports Toshiba's logic IC unit is going fab lite as the company will outsource production of its chips to multiple foundries:
The company's so-called Logic LSI Division will expand its outsourcing of cutting-edge products, including 40-nm chips, to multiple foundries from fiscal year 2011, according to Toshiba. This has been in the works for some time.

As part of the strategy for transforming its system LSI business and ''securing an asset light business model,'' Toshiba has signed a memorandum of understanding with Sony Corp., expressing the intent to dissolve Nagasaki Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. (NSM) and to transfer 300-mm wafer fabrication lines there from Toshiba to Sony. The move was expected.

Toshiba will continue to keep and maintain its NAND flash fabs. There appears to be no change on that front.
