AnandTech writes Micron held an opening ceremony to celebrate the completion of the construction of its Fab 10 Expansion in Singapore. The new cleanroom will not increase Micron's production capacity in terms of wafers but will enable more advanced production. The memory maker is still installing new equipment and expects Fab 10 Expansion will be able to kick off production of 96-layer 3D NAND memory before the end of this year.
Micron is now installing equipment and expects to start production of 96-layer 3D NAND at the new Fab 10 Expansion sometime in the second half of this calendar year (i.e. in the next 4.5 months). Meanwhile, the company stresses that it will align its spending on production tools with 3D NAND demand and trends. Furthermore, even when fully equipped, the facility is not expected to add any new wafer capacity, but rather will be used to house more advanced process equipment necessary for greater numbers of 3D NAND layers.
