The article reports on the job cuts announced by National Semiconductor Corp. at its 3 fabs and its plans to dispose of certain manufacturing equipment. The move is aimed at cutting costs and rationalize its capacity. National said most of the job cuts will impact Arlington, Texas, which primarily runs 150-mm wafers and recently ramped up production on a new 200-mm line, and Greenock, Scotland, which runs 150-mm wafers, while a small number of positions are to be affected in South Portland, a 200-mm wafer facility.
