Projects

Nokia Mobile Phone Production Facility
Nokia has chosen Chennai in the state of Tamil Nadu, Southern India, for its tenth mobile phone factory. The facility will cost up to $150m over three years, and will make entry-level, mid-level, and top-end GSM (Global System Mobile) and CDMA (Code division multiple access) handsets for the Indian market.

Samsung Electronics 300mm Fab Plant
Samsung Electronics is constructing a 300mm wafer fab in Austin, Texas. This, the first 300mm fab in central Texas, will produce DRAMs and other devices.

Toshiba 300mm Wafer Fab
Toshiba Corp. and SanDisk are building a new 300mm wafer fabrication facility at Toshiba's Yokkaichi operations in Japan. The companies plan to start construction of the new facility, called Fab-4, in August 2006. Initial production operations are scheduled to begin in Q4 2007.

AMD Saxony 300mm Semiconductor
AMD’s 300mm 65nm fab in Dresden, Germany, is one of Europe's largest semiconductor manufacturing facilities. The new facility is located next to AMD's existing main microprocessor fab, Fab 30.

Elpida Memory
Elpida Memory and Hiroshima Elpida Memory have constructed a second 300mm wafer fab in Hiroshima. The new 300mm DRAM (Dynamic RAM) plant was built next to the company's first 300mm facility and began mass production at the end of 2005. Elpida introduced 85nm processing at the new facility soon afterwards.
