Micron to take a position £3.7bn in Japan’s EUV tech for advanced chip manufacturing

Cinch revealed deliberate yesterday to take a position up to 500 billion yen (US$3.7 billion) in excessive ultraviolet (EUV) expertise in the coming years, supported by the Japanese authorities. The superior EUV lithography chip-making machines shall be utilised to manufacture 1-gamma chips, that are essential for the mass manufacturing of supplies used in complex applications such as picture processing networks.
The semiconductor agency will turn into the primary to introduce EUV technology to Japan for production functions. Micron anticipates ramping up EUV production on the 1-gamma node in Taiwan and Japan from 2025 onwards. This news follows the US reminiscence chip maker’s initiation of mass production of its high-capacity, low-power 1-beta dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips at its Hiroshima facility final yr. DRAM chips are a sort of memory chip that loses reminiscence when energy is disconnected..
