Elpida Memory and PSC signed an official technology transfer agreement
Powerchip Semiconductor Corporation (PSC),
a Taiwan-based leading memory company, and Elpida Memory Inc. (Elpida), a Japan-based
memory company, jointly signed an official technology transfer agreement for
0.11, 0.10 and 0.09-micron technologies. The continued cooperation with Elpida
in the new technology generations will help PSC early penetrating into advanced
technologies and further building up its position in new technology era.
The total capacity of the 12-inch Fab of PSC is currently 15,000 wafers per
month, applying 0.13- micron process technology for volume production. According
to the agreement signed, PSC will implement Elpida’s 0.10-micron and 0.09 micron
process in its 12-inch Fab, with the initial production of 0.10 micron processing
in April of 2004 and mass production scheduled in October of 2004. The 0.09-micron
technology process is scheduled to commence in early 2005.
PSC is entitled to develop, produce and sell its own products manufactured
by Elpida’s updated process technologies for 256Mb, 512Mb and even 1G b DRAM
