Keywords:National? 200mm? wafer facilities?

National Semiconductor Corp. is disposing certain manufacturing equipment at its wafer fabrication facilities and cutting around 200 personnel from its payroll as the company continues to take steps to modernize facilities and rationalize its capacity.

National's three wafer fabrication facilities are located in Arlington, Texas; Greenock, Scotland; and South Portland, Maine. Most of the 200 eliminated positions are in Arlington and Greenock. The Arlington facility, which primarily runs 150mm wafers, recently ramped up production on a new 200mm production line. The Greenock facility runs 150mm wafers. A small number of positions are affected in South Portland, a 200mm wafer facility.

Meanwhile, the eliminated positions include both direct and indirect labor, manufacturing jobs as well as managerial, staff and support positions. Affected employees will receive severance packages commensurate with their length of employment.
