Global DRAM shipments grew by 6% in March
According to The Digitimes , referring to DRAMeXchange, global DRAM production grew by 6.05% in March to 226.89 million conventional chips (256Mbit). Main reasons for this were more workdays (comparing to the previous month), increased wafer purchases, etc. Besides, while moving to 0.13µm and 0.14µm process technologies, makers reported about production improvements.
Last month about 18-20% of all DRAM chips were made in Taiwan. This is mostly related to increased purchases of 12" wafers by Powerchip Semiconductor Corporationís (PSC) that made about 12,000 in March. Production volumes growth in Germany and USA made 12.59% and 4.53%, respectively. As for the former, growth was the result of increased wafer purchases by Infineon Technologies.
The only country reducing production volumes is Japan with 14.10% reduction in March as a result of Mitsubishi Electric´s departure from the DRAM market.
