Spansion sends more business to TSMC

September 5, 2006 – NOR flash memory supplier Spansion Inc. is contracting Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) to produce its NOR flash memory chip and its ORNAND flash memory using 90nm process technologies, starting next year, according to the Taiwan Economic News.

The two have collaborated on 0.11-micron 256-512MBit NOR chips since early 2005. Spansion also is purchasing wafer-sort capacity at Kyec Yuan Electronics Co., Ltd. to test the chips, along with ChipMOS Technologies Ltd. The report quoted Spansion COO Jim Doran predicting the NOR flash memory market to rise 6%-10% this year, while prices only moderately slip.

Spansion posted sales of about $19.9 million in 2Q06, surpassing Intel for the top spot in global supplies of flash memory chips.
