Earth Times: Due to the current economic slowdown, Toshiba plans to stop production for short periods at some of its fabs. One of the facilities affected is Oita operations, responsible for image sensors and SoC LSI production. The 300mm wafer lines will stop on January 5 and 6 for maintenance and other lines will stop for 22 days from December 24 to January 14.
My understanding is that Toshiba image sensors are manufactured on 200mm lines (am I right?), meaning they are to shut down for 22 days.
