Who bought the Texas fab from Atmel Corp.?

Maxim Integrated Products Inc. has acquired a wafer fabrication facility in Irving, Texas from Atmel for approximately $38 million. The facility, located on approximately 39 acres, is comprised of about 622,000 square feet of clean room and office space. Approximately 60,000 square feet is currently clean room space with the capability of expanding to 100,000 square feet.

Vijay Ullal, group president at Maxim, said the fab will expand the company's capacity. "This facility puts us in an excellent position for future capacity requirements," he said in a statement. ''It is capable of 20,000 8inch wafer starts per month with the capability of expanding to over 30,000 wafer starts per month. The scale and construction of this facility will enable Maxim to bring on line capacity down to the 0.18?m node with low cost and short cycle time with high yields."
