DigiTimes heard more DRAM makers have cut production as prices are dorpping due to low demand:
Nanya Technology and Inotera Memories have joined Elpida Memory, Powerchip Technology and Rexchip Electronics in cutting production amid slumping prices and a global economic downturn, according to industry sources.
Nanya has scaled down DRAM production by as much as 20%, the sources claimed. Nanya has also requested Inotera Memories, its DRAM-manufacturing joint venture with Micron Technolog, to cut back production 5-10%, the sources indicated.
Inotera's supplies to Micron, however, remain normal, the sources added. The JV runs two 12-inch fabs with a combined monthly capacity of 130,000 wafers, half of which are shipped to Micron and the other half to Micron.
