It is widely used personal computers and mobile phones, and ATM banking, of an integrated circuit Renesas makes “microcomputer” is auto parts and 40% global market share among them.Supply of Renesas If Stop, I mean that we will not be able to make the car all over the world.
Revision of production base, Renesas had reviewed the production line, including foundries and also our own factory (contract manufacturing company) from “before the earthquake.Speak added, “we believe always stable supply of leveling line.
On the other hand, HOYA is considering overseas production of glass becomes a member of the original semiconductor production “mask blanks”.The company said, “that you have specifically determined not,” but, if you have moved some production to Malaysia already, it seems to promote overseas full-scale production.
There is also aim to prevent technology leakage parts and components manufacturers in Japan, domestic production of key parts’ve left.Also sometimes for several years, for-profit or-up of production efficiency, I was without a stock as much as possible, it has been considered production and can be adjusted quickly if domestic.
