So, truth be told, do the Fab
5 really work all that magic on the straight guys in one day?
Risks that may cause these forward-looking statements to be inaccurate include among others: unexpected delays in the production of 56-nanometer NAND flash products at Fab
3, unexpected delays in completion of Fab
4 or in the ramp-up of 56-nanometer NAND flash production at Fab
4, once completed, inability to meet higher performance specifications, higher than expected costs and the other risks detailed from time-to-time under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in our Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including, but not limited to, Form 10-K and our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.
In return, Macronix agreed to make certain commitments, including loading of Fab
will feature the industry's most advanced 300mm automation and manufacturing systems to support the next generations of process technologies.
0 product conforms to all relevant standards for 300mm fab
operation, including SEMI's CIM Framework, and follows the Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors.

Currently, AMD is successfully ramping 65nm process technology in Fab
36, and revenue shipments remain on track for the fourth quarter of 2006.
The core activity of the Kulim fab
is to produce power semiconductors which enable efficient energy management, such as CoolMOS and IGBT chips for industrial applications and SMART-Power chips for use in cars.
4 is expected to come on line in the fourth quarter (Oct-Dec) of 2007, with an initial capacity of 2,500 wafers a month.
I've been tracking wafer fab
metrics for more than 20 years and I've never seen a year like this one," reflected George Burns, SMA president.
AMD will ramp down 200mm manufacturing in the second half of 2007, with preparation already underway for the ramp of 300mm wafers on 65nm process technology at Fab
38 by the end of 2007.
