Yang claims YMTC has no intention of disrupting the NAND chip market, he points out the company is pursuing profit growth. At the moment, YMTC's product gross margin is negative, but the rollout of the 64-layer technology should enable the company to turn margins to positive.
Given its more competitive cost structure, YMTC's next-generation 64-layer 3D NAND technology will be the company's focus, Yang noted. The company has also developed its own 3D NAND technology, dubbed Xtacking, with the availability of engineering samples, Yang said. YMTC's Xtacking technology was unveiled at the Flash Memory Summit in the US in August.Via: DigiTimes
