  • Fujitsu to Reorganize Singapore Microchip Assembly Plant
  • November 9, 1998 (TOKYO) -- Fujitsu Ltd. announced that in response to the deterioration of its DRAM microchip sector's profitability, it will reorganize its Singapore semiconductor assembly plant.
    The Jurong plant of Fujitsu Microelectronics Asia Pte. Ltd., based in Singapore, has performed the testing process for DRAMs as well as assembly and testing of compound semiconductors.

    Its test equipment for DRAMs will be sold to United Test & Assembly (UTAC) of Singapore as early as January 1999. Later, Fujitsu plans to contract out the DRAM testing process to UTAC.

    Fujitsu said the assembly and testing processes for compound semiconductors will be transferred to Fujitsu Quantum Device Ltd. In line with the move, the company will establish a subsidiary of Fujitsu Quantum Device in Singapore. That unit, to be set up in February 1999, will likely be called Fujitsu Quantum Devices Singapore Pte., Ltd.
