Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Chartered Semiconductor Mfg have entered into sourcing and manufacturing technology agreements. Chartered will implement under license portions of AMD's automated precision manufacturing (APM) software suite and become an additional manufacturing source of AMD64 microprocessors.

AMD is lining up additional incremental capacity to augment its production at its facility in Dresden, Germany. The company will use this capacity to meet the expanding end-customer demands for its Athlon 64 and Opteron processor-based systems. AMD plans to have Chartered begin production in 2006.

Chartered will begin integrating APM into Fab 7, its 300mm wafer fabrication facility in Singapore, starting in the fourth quarter of 2004.
