05.29.2006 - AMD To Invest Us$2.5 Billion In Germany To Expand 300mm Microprocessor Production



View AMD related news. SUNNYVALE and DRESDEN -- May 29, 2006 --AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that it plans to expand its microprocessor manufacturing capacity over the next three years by adding additional 300 millimeter wafer production capabilities in Dresden through the implementation of three new projects. AMD’s newest fabrication facility will come online through a major transformation of the company’s existing Fab 30, which will be named Fab 38. The transition from 200mm to 300mm allows for more than twice as many processors on a wafer. In addition, AMD will also expand Fab 36’s existing 300mm capacity and build a new clean room facility to handle the site’s growing Bump and Test requirements, which is one of the final stages of the manufacturing process where wafers are prepared to be shipped for packaging. With plans to invest a total of US$2.5 billion in the Dresden expansion projects, AMD continues to aggressively scale its innovative manufacturing processes to meet growing customer needs.
