Santa Clara, Calif.--Aug. 28, 1997--NEC Electronics Inc. (Santa Clara, Calif.) announced a $120 million investment in its Roseville, Calif. manufacturing facility. The investment is targeted at capital equipment to support NEC's move to a 0.25-m drawn (0.18-m L-effective) deep submicron process technology.
Currently, the Roseville facility produces advanced microprocessor, ASIC and memory devices commonly used in today's computers, telecommunications systems, and a variety of consumer products. The investment is not expected to require additional facilities or changes to the current workforce in Roseville.
The additional new manufacturing equipment required to support a 0.25-m process technology includes excimer steppers, new metalization, and advanced etching equipment.
The new equipment is slated for installation in the fourth quarter of 1997 and will bring NEC's total investment in Roseville to more than $1.3 billion.
This current investment follows last October's announcement of a $110 million capital investment in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to upgrade existing manufacturing lines to build more 0.35-m (0.25-L-effective)-based products. The Roseville plant is ISO 9002 certified and is chartered with supplying its North American customer base with products.
