Qimonda AG will invest about $329 million over the next three years for the construction of a new facility at its back-end manufacturing site in China.

Qimonda Technologies (Suzhou) Co. Ltd, the back-end site established in 2003, is a joint venture of Qimonda AG and China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park Venture Co. Ltd.

The expansion is aimed to double the capacity for assembly and testing of memory ICs. Under the project, a new clean room of 10,000m? will be added to the existing clean room in the facility that also measures 10,000m?.

Construction of the new facility will begin this month, with the site targeted to be ready for equipment installation by late 2007. Moreover, the company will increase its headcount in the facility from 1,700 to 3,000 employees.

"Growth in our front-end capacities, with more than two-thirds of our DRAM bits shipped now produced on 300mm manufacturing lines, clearly requires an increase in our back-end capacities. With the expansion in Suzhou we are now excellently set up to further leverage our competitive advantage in 300mm manufacturing," said Kin Wah Loh, president and CEO, Qimonda.
