STMicroelectronics Lays First Stone for China Back-End Plant

ST’s Longgang site has been designed to house up to 40,000 sq m of manufacturing space, with a capacity for approximately 5000 employees, when fully built out. The first 20,000 sq m building is expected to be completed by the end of September 2008, followed by the installation of the manufacturing equipment in 4Q08. When complete, the Longgang plant will be among ST’s largest packaging and test facilities worldwide.

(November 06, 2007) DRESDEN & OBERKOCHEN, Germany — The companies AMD, Carl Zeiss SMT, and Qimonda are cooperating to launch a 12 million euro project within the framework of the joint Nanoanalysis project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The partners are working together on new analytical and characterization methods required for the development of the next chip generation. This reportedly strengthens the competency of the Dresden microelectronics site, particularly in the fields of semiconductor analysis and metrology.
