Toshiba resumes operation following brief downtime

Posted on Monday, March 14 2011 @ 19:02:35 CET by

Earlier today EE Times wrote that Toshiba shut down some of its sites to save electricity in earthquake and tsunami struck Japan.
Toshiba Corp. has announced that it is cooperating with a request from Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to cut electricity consumption by operating only those of its businesses related to the provision of essential services. The move is in relation to power shortages and the provision of emergency services in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that hit northern Japan on Friday (March 11).
However, later today The Inquirer wrote that Toshiba's chip plant has restarted and that the downtime was only brief.
JAPANESE ELECTRONICS GIANT Toshiba's main NAND facility in Yokkaichi near Tokyo shut down only briefly due to the earthquake suffered by the island nation over the weekend.

The chipmaker supplies more than a third of the NAND flash memory chips used worldwide in devices like Apple's Ipad, according to Reuters.

"There was some loss of wafers, but operations have since resumed. They're currently operating and the overall impact still being assessed," Toshiba said.
