AMD Plans New Plants

Abstract:
AMD, which has two factories in Dresden, Germany, told the newspaper it will slow its conversion of one of them to more advanced technology as part of its cost-cutting plan, which is speculated by some to include moving toward a fabless model.

IBM, with which AMD collaborates on R&D, announced Thursday a new self-assembly process perfected at the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (See Chip Advance Uses Nature's Patterning Process) that creates uniform patterns of trillions of nanoscale holes in a microprocessor to improve performance. New York's package includes $150 million in R&D money for AMD to be used at IBM's East Fishkill, N.Y., facility and at Albany NanoTech, UAlbany's $3.5 billion semiconductor manufacturing research facility.
