The severe weather in Japan has caused frequent accidents in semiconductor factories, and the supply of these two types of chips will be affected!
On July 12, Micron Technology reported, Micron's DRAM factory in Hiroshima, Japan was affected by severe weather, and long -term power outage occurred!
It is understood that the power outage has a certain impact on the DRAM production equipment of Meiguang.Some production devices have been discontinued and have been recovered recently, but they can only be restored to a lower level.
As for the loss caused by the power outage, Micron is still under investigation.For semiconductor production, power outage may cause problems that are being produced.It is necessary to determine whether it meets the quality standards, otherwise it can only be scrapped.
Micron is expected to have an impact on the supply of memory in the fourth quarter of fiscal year and the first quarter of fiscal year in fiscal year and the first quarter of fiscal year, but it is not sure how big it is.Micron is currently evaluating the impact of recent supply and is working hard to use existing inventory and its remaining DRAM factory networks to meet key customer requirements.Micron will provide updated information to its customers when allowing the situation.
Earlier news, the industry research company TrendForce reported that in the second quarter of this year, the average price of DRAM memory contracts as the main storage chip decreased by 10.6%year -on -year, which was the first time in two years.go.The price is also fluctuating.
Not only will it fall in the second quarter, it will be worse in the third quarter.TrendForce predicts that the average price of memory contracts will fall by 21%month -on -month, while the price of NAND flash memory contracts will fall 12%month -on -month.
Not only did Micron's factory stop working due to weather, but according to news on July 6, Ruisa Electronics also issued an important warning on its official website.The company is located in Kawamoto Factory in Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Prefecture, and is influenced by Typhoon No. 4 Averri, causing local thunderstorms.The power cord was hit by lightning, causing an instant voltage to decrease, causing the Sichuan Plant to temporarily suspend work from July 5. It is understood that the production of MCUs and other products for the production of the Kawatsu plant.
Ruisa pointed out that in order to prevent instant voltage decline, the company launched countermeasures such as UPS (uninterrupted power system), but the duration of the voltage decrease than the time that occurred in the past 10 years and the company's estimation, resulting in about 90% of the equipment.Stop.
Ruisa Electronics stated that production equipment and some projects have been restarted, and production will be resumed from the 6th.The production capacity is expected to return to the level before the discontinuation (before the instantaneous pressure) level.
Ruisa Electronics pointed out that when the instantaneous voltage occurred, the Hedan-in-PROCESS on the production line of the Kawaka plant is estimated to be partially damaged.Production every week.
Similarly, it is understood that on the evening of June 26, a magnitude 5 shock occurred in Kyushu, Japan, and the Ruisa Electronics Plant was also affected.
Ruisa Electronics stated that its Kawaka Factory (Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Prefecture) and Jinjin Factory (Kumamoto Prefecture Kumachi) were located near the epicenter, but the factories, public facilities and manufacturing equipment were not damaged, and the two factories continued to operate.It was just that some equipment of the Kawabu factory stopped working.However, the entire supply chain of Renesas, including suppliers and partner companies, has not been affected.
