Recession has taken its toll. Results are evident. Companies have to cut their expenses else its hard for them to stay in the game. Just wondering if closing a fab makes sense. Sell it rather than closing it. Who knows there are so many applications possible with larger gate length IC's.

I would expect that Toshiba was trimming production in order to cut costs and better focus on the more profitable product lines. Given the small wafer size of that fab it would make sense to out source that production and reallocate company resources.

It seems that outsourcing is inevitable for developed economies.
