AMD Opens New 300mm Fab 36 In Dresden, Germany
At a ceremony attended by top German government officials and leaders from across the semiconductor industry, AMD today announced the grand opening of its 300 millimeter Fab 36 in Dresden, Germany.
With the production ramp in Fab 36 progressing on schedule, the company intends to make 90nm production shipments in the first quarter of 2006 and begin 65nm production by the end of 2006. AMD has set a goal to be substantially converted to 65nm in Fab 36 by mid-2007.
AMD plans to add production output on a steady year-to-year basis, giving it the potential to ship as many as 100 million units in 2008, while also keeping fab utilization at consistently high levels.
