ABSTRACT
The article discusses the move of Nanya Technology Corp. to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Micron. The companies under the MOU will explore potential technology sharing and a joint technology program for DRAM development and design that focuses on sub-50nm technologies. The author believed that the agreement may prove to support the joint venture of Nanya with Qimonda. The author stated that Nanya may be able to ramp the 4f2 technology, cut costs and gain a competitive edge if it can integrate Micron's stacked capacitor technology with the trench capability of Qimonda.
