Hopelly this will save some of the jobs at the Roseville fab that may have been lost under Renesas.

With the spiraling trend towards fabless, is the industry is danger of putting too much control in too few hands as far as fabrication goes. Though it is the most expensive thing to own for technology companies, without a degree of control and availability of fab no industry can hope to bring new and better semiconductor products to the markets. In-spite of so much demand for silicon why is there no efforts towards economy oriented fabs which can be run by at least a billion dollar company? Would universities be able to help in this move?

So many news from Renesas recently. Good or bad? I believe the management is having hard time. Just hope this company can reshape better so it can find its focus well. This company is really doing good in automotive field so they need to be picky in strategies.
