Following price hikes in the DRAM market, Kingston has reportedly booked up almost all of the available DDR3 production capacity at Nanya Technology, as wella s the majority of that at Powerchip Technology. Anonymous sources revealed to DigiTimes that Kingston secured Nanya's available DDR3 capacity and also the 100 million DDR3 chips stockpiled by the chipmaker, while also securing 20,000 12-inch monthly wafer starts from Powerchip.
Nanya and Powerchip are among the DRAM manufacturers looking to diversify their product lines away from PC-use parts and into other areas such as specialty DRAM, niche-market memory and foundry services.

Acknowledging that the global supply of PC DRAM chips will be tight, Kingston has reached a deal with Nanya to secure the available DDR3 capacity, and also the chips stockpiled previously by the chipmaker, the sources said. Nanya has about 100 million DDR3 chips on hand at present, the sources disclosed.

Nanya said previously that the company would allocate more capacity to produce higher-ASP memory products targeted at servers and mobile devices, such as tablets.
