spoken (and written) like a true SMIC insider. I know all you guys at the Wuhan fab have your fingers crossed!

Micron made a bid of $80m on Qi Richmond fab, which pissed off Qimonda. TI finally paid $170m for the 300mm and some 200mm tools, leaving an empty shell in Richmond. Now Micron may need to pay $3B to set up the Wuhan fab! What a smart company!

Looks like Micron changes strategy. Leaving the 300mm Flash JV with Hynix in China and then acquiring its own fab in China. They need to retrofit the fab for Micron products; probably DRAM?!

Wonder about the connection to Nanya/Inotera. Will this impact/involve them?

Oh boy. It is interesting that Appleton didn't take over the now defunct Qimonda fab in Richmond, but is willing to buy the SMIC fab in China that was a foundry for Qimonda. Neither Qimonda nor SMIC made money on the deal. Appleton is nuts. He should stay out of China. Go there, and the Chinese will steal your technology. Not a very bright move.

The fabs must be retooled for leading edge DRAM or Flash, it's questionable.

Micron WILL NOT get into the foundry. They may (or may not) buy the SMIC fab to re-enter the China market. Micron will make its own products in the fab.

What is Micron trying to do, enter foundry business? SMIC only equipped for foundry work.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
