Samsung to invest in new US fabrication line

By Derek Sooman on
Samsung Electronics has announced that the company is to invest $220 million in a new 300mm fabrication line in the US. Construction at the plant will begin this year, with production expected to begin in the third quarter of 2007.

The new investment for a 300mm (12-inch) fabrication line will bring greater cost competitiveness to the Austin plant that was originally built as a 200mm wafer production facility, the company stated.
