Samsung Electronics 300mm Fab PlantNovember 17th, 2007 - 1:04 pm ICT by admin
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.
The fab will cost around $3.5bn, with Texas having offered Samsung over $230m in tax abatements and other incentives. This was however apparently less than half the amount offered by New York, which was also interested in hosting the new plant.
Production should begin by late 2007 or early 2008, although it will take several years to completely outfit the factory.
The plant adds to Samsung’s existing 200mm DRAM fab at Austin, opened in 1998. Samsung bought around 120ha (300ac) of land when it set up the 200mm plant, giving room for a $500m expansion and upgrade in 2002. This fab covers over 61,000m
