SanDisk Corp. and Toshiba Corp. have signed a memorandum of understanding under which the two companies will consolidate their FlashVision advanced NAND Flash wafer fab manufacturing operations at Toshiba's memory fab at Yokkaichi, Japan.

The two companies believe that they can achieve cost-competitive NAND wafer manufacturing by consolidating all NAND wafer fab operations at Yokkaichi. Toshiba currently manufactures 165m NAND Flash wafers for the FlashVision joint venture at both Yokkaichi and at the Dominion Semiconductor facility in Manassas, Virginia.

Under the terms of the agreement, Toshiba will equip a portion of the Yokkaichi fab that is currently not being utilized with advanced FlashVision-owned NAND production tool-set from Dominion. Toshiba has agreed to undertake full responsibility for the NAND production transition from Dominion to Yokkaichi, which is expected to be completed this year. As the consolidation is completed, Yokkaichi's total NAND wafer output is expected to match the combined current NAND capacity of Yokkaichi and Dominion.
