Eon Silicon Solution, a Taiwan-based flash chip supplier, has been revealed that it will team up with China Sigma to set up a NAND flash joint venture in China, according to industry sources.

Since early 2014, market speculation has indicated that Taiwan-based Elite Semiconductor Memory Technology (ESMT) and US-based Integrated Silicon Solutions (ISSI) have been competing with each other to take over the management of Eon, the sources noted.

SDRAM vendor ESMT became one of the major shareholders of Eon in 2011 and has been trying to take over Eon in order to integrate its SDRAM, NOR/NAND flash businesses, eyeing the booming MCP NAND flash market, the sources added.

The Eon-China Sigma joint venture is likely to focus on the development and production of single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash chips, a move which is set to compete directly with Taiwan-based flash memory suppliers Macronix International and Winbond Electronics, the sources contended.
