InoteraApplied Materials has signed a two-year system support contract with Inotera Memories that covers its two 300mm DRAM fabs, located in Taiwan. Inotera Memories is a joint venture between Qimonda AG and Nanya Technology Corporation.

“We’ve determined that partnering with Applied Materials will allow us to reduce cost and increase the performance of these systems,” said Alex Wang, Inotera Purchasing Department Manager. “We look forward to working with Applied to drive down the cost of our fab operations.”

“Inotera is a very successful DRAM manufacturer, and this contract affirms that we can bring significant value to a very cost-sensitive business model,” said Manfred Kerschbaum, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Applied Global Services. “In addition to reducing costs, we improve performance by enabling the fastest time to repair and recovery – reducing customer risk and enhancing predictability of operations.”

Applied is also to implement its ‘ExpertConnect’ suite, for which Inotera handles remote diagnostics for processing tools.
