Toshiba Corp. announced that it will be increasing its semiconductor business capital expenditure in order to expand memory production at its Oita operations in Kyushu. According to Toshiba, the additional investment of about 12-billion yen, will raise capex on semiconductors in this fiscal year from 118 to 130 billion yen, and allow the company to meet increased demand for memories, particularly flash memory for personal digital products, including digital still cameras and cellphones with cameras.

Toshiba's memory business centers on flash memory, SRAM for multi-chip devices, and high-end Rambus DRAM for embedded applications. At Yokkaichi Operations in Mie prefecture, its main memory production base, the company is supporting expanding production of flash memories and multi-chip packages, in advance of construction of new 300mm lines, and will reinforce this program by expanding memory production at Oita.

Oita also produces small quantities of memory products, including SRAMs.
