Toshiba increases its Flash memory production


Toshiba increases production of NAND flash memory chips faster than initially anticipated, the company said Monday.

The company is one of the world’s largest producers of flash memory chips, which are used in a wide variety of consumer electronics products, including iPods, iPhones, digital cameras, and memory cards.

Currently most of Toshiba’s production at its number three chip factory is done on an industrial line that can make chips with characteristics as small as 70 nanometers, but in January the company began using a more advanced 56-inch production process. nanometers. The 56 nanometer technology means that chips can be physically made smaller so that they fit more on a wafer and make it more efficient. This means that the resulting chips are cheaper and use less power.
