The initial testing results confirmed the processing as well as the equipment capabilities and performance. Inotera is now ready to move into the next stage of volume ramp up to monthly wafer starts of around 24,000 by the end of 2004. In the second stage –expected to be completed by the end of 2005, a total capacity of around 54,000 wafer starts per month is expected to be reached, making Inotera one of the world’s largest 300mm semiconductor facilities.
