ALEHynix Semiconductor has expanded bulk gas supply contracts with Air Liquide Electronics at its new 300mm fab located in Cheongju, South Korea and its joint venture 300mm fab in Wuxi, China.

“These increases in capacity are in line with our strategy to expand our 300 mm output and to maximize our production efficiency,” said M .C. Kim, Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer of Hynix Semiconductor. “Air Liquide is a long time partner which has already supported our projects throughout the world. Its reliability and efficiency have stood the test of time and we are delighted to collaborate with them again on this project.”

The Hynix-Numonyx NAND flash 300mm facility in Wuxi will see Air Liquide China install two Ultra High Purity Nitrogen (HPN) generators and expand the oxygen, argon, hydrogen, helium and compressed dry air supplies due to increasing demand from the fab, according to Air Liquide. The expansion cost is put at approximately €35 million.

The Hynix fab in Cheongju will see Air Liquide install bulk specialty gas dispensing systems.
