Elpida leverage pales compared to ASML leverage.

The main reasons are that Elpida paid full price to build and equip their fabs. Micron is buying them for pennies on the dollar. So Micron can afford smaller profit margins to get a return on their investment. Also, with Elpidas capacity Micron will gain economies of scale, spreading out R & D and other fixed costs over more wafers, leading to lower net manufacturing cost per wafer.

good question, I bet the below, 1. high cost, japan's labor cost is twice of korea / singapore(where most micron's fab located). 2. f..ed up culture, that's what happened with late qimonda, ie. cheating , stealing everywhere. 3. others, can microns fix these two problems? very hard.

What are the reasons Elpida went bankrupt and how can Micron avoid them?

micron is better off going to support much higher data-rates via multi-gigabit differential interfaces, look ahead, forge, the market will be there, people are more and more into content, videos, social networking, and you don't need to rely on older technologies, build faster, better cheaper ones

If the deal goes through then Micron gets extra capacity at a knock down price (and hasn't Apple indicated that it might move more memory sourcing to Elpida from Samsung??). If the deal does not go through then the Elpida capacity leaves the memory market - good for all DRAM players. I see Micron as a winner in either scenario?

A depressing valuation of leading edge DRAM technology.

Micron will be really unhappy if they can't get this deal done. Its very hard to compete with samsung.

It's a screaming deal. But that's not the whole deal. Micron still must pay $1.75 billion to Elpdia's debt holders. That's a lot of money, though not nearly as much as Elpida owed them. It's a fire sale deal, and a very good deal for Micron right now, but the final evaluation will probably have to wait a few months or years.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

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.
