It is a NOR plant, for heaven's sake!

Why do these guys think that STM and Intel merged and then sold the business? NOR still has some uses, sure, but it is a dying chip. I can't claim to know the employment situation in the Italian fab, but my guess is that job cuts are warranted.

It is NOR, not NAND (so to speak).

Micron's Jobs Butchery in Italy

NO RATINGS
Micron Jobs cut in Italy appears to be ungratefull and short-seeing if we look at what Micron "harvested" from its "company shopping" in Italy:
  1. A solid position in the highly remunerative market of Automotive
  2. A consolidated customers relationship network in the ritical market of the "code storage" (NOR) memories
  3. A "nursery" of next generation products for the above mentioned markets
  4. Promising Technologies for future products and markets (the PCM)
  5. Valuable Contributions in terms of Intellectual Property
  6. Expertized Work Teams, inserted in a consolidated multi-site jobs network
  7. Marketing Strategy, Technical and Scientifical knowledge

This jobs "killing" seems also non-sensical and deceiving after the high number of awards Micron recognized in 2013 to many ialian Teams and after the the money spent for "moving home" to a brand-new site involving the Agrate site just before the announced cuts!.  God bless Micron!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
