Taiwanese memory makers return to profitability

Three large Taiwanese DRAM makers — Winbond Electronics, Powerchip Semiconductor Corporation (PSC) and ProMOS Technologies – became profitable again in Q3. Winbond´s memory sales grew by 50% comparing to the previous quarter. By the moment, the company has been producing 5500 Pseudo SRAM wafers planning to increase this number up to 10,000 units by the year-end.

According to PSC, the load of its 12" Fab 12A (0.13µm process) made 80% in Q3, while the production would make over 15,000 wafers monthly. The 4th Taiwanese DRAM maker, Nanya Technology, is to report about profits early in November.
