Haven't seen a plan on Micron's integration of Elpida. Don't think it will go so smoothly.

They are already part of SK Telecom, who may let them exit DRAM to focus on NVM. But the SK government will not let their DRAM technology leave the country, so it could go to Samsung.

Now that Samsung and Micron both have scale, is Hynix next to go??

Perhaps they would recover their investment in Elpida faster if they just mothballed the Hiroshima Fab for a while, thus stabilizing DRAM prices. Then they could use the revenue generated from higher ASPs for DRAM by converting the Hiroshima Fab to either NAND or even a 28 nm Foundry ( since current players can't keep up with demand ). Of course to make this happen they would need to hang on to the experienced staff at Elpida for 2 - 3 years.

Micron's motto is 'cheap' if you know it. This is definitely cheap compared with building a brand new facility. 2.5 billion... well, it seems has fxxd it self up in losing the balance between 'cheap' and 'quality' efficiency. it got piles of cheap engs with no efficiency at all and create tons of excursions for them.

Looks like Micron is on buying spree? Why is it that Micron is so much interested in buying other companies ? Is it the new strategy by its new CEO or is it because they have lot of extra cash ?

Wow, after a lot of talk of Jap/Kor take over it goes to Micron, good consolidation I would say but memory business is a numbers game and unless you have the volume it's difficult to survive. Traditionally the industry is slow on adopting new technologies to you need to stay there until it pays back.

The DRAM sector only has room for one profit-making DRAM maker. #2, #3 could go the way of AMD and Cyrix.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
