Micron Buys a Fab to Expand Sensor Production

Micron purchased an 8-inch fab facility from Zilog Inc. in Nampa, Ida. for $5 million, including 38 acres of land (EETimes).
Micron plans to invest in facility improvements and expects to bring the facility online by the end of the year. The fab will be responsible for "final steps" of image sensor processing and other critical manufacturing steps.
Last quarter Micron’s CMOS image sensor sales were $153.8 million, up 36 percent over the like period a year ago. The sensor business represented 11.3 percent of its overall sales.
