Macquarie Electronics has been selected to sell core equipment from Qimonda’s 300mm fab in Dresden Germany, according to an EETimes report. The semiconductor equipment reseller and lease specialist, part of Macquarie bank is to offer selected mainstream tools for sale from Applied Materials, KLA-Tencor, Tokyo Electron, and ASML, the report says.

Qimonda’s Drseden facility also has an advanced R&D lab with leading-edge equipment, though the story did not indicate whether the sale of tools included the R&D facility equipment.

ATREG, a division of Colliers International, had previously been selected for disposing Qimonda’s 200mm and 300mm facilities and equipment in Richmond, Virginia.

The move by Qimonda’s insolvency administrator, would seem to confirm that interest in the bankrupt memory manufacturer as a going concern has all but ended.
