Diodes 公司完成收購安森美在緬因州南波特蘭市的晶圓製造廠

Diodes 公司 (那斯達克股票代號:DIOD) 今日宣布已完成收購安森美在緬因州南波特蘭市之晶圓製造廠 (SPFAB)。

正如同先前所宣布的,Diodes 將整合位於南波特蘭市的製造設施和晶圓廠營運業務,包括將 SPFAB 的員工遷至 Diodes。在這項多年期晶圓供應協議中,安森美將這項生產活動轉移到其他晶圓廠進行時,Diodes 將繼續在 SPFAB 生產安森美的產品。

Diodes 公司的董事長、總裁暨執行長盧克修博士表示:「我們非常高興順利完成這項交易,這與我們在未來幾年大幅提高收入和利潤的策略目標一致。我想先歡迎 SPFAB 的員工加入 Diodes 的大家庭。廠內團隊卓越的工程能力與技能,將能夠支持我們達到預期的技術和營運績效目標。SPFAB 替 Diodes 公司的類比產品提供了額外的 200mm 晶圓廠產能,可以增加我們在汽車產業和工業終端市場的成長動能。這處位於美國的晶圓廠,連同我們目前在亞洲和歐洲所擁有的工廠,更進一步擴大了我們的全球生產規模,在如今供貨吃緊的環境下,顯著提升了 Diodes 的內部產能和競爭優勢,也有助於推動我們日後的長期成長。在完成交易後,我們的目標是積極提升 SPFAB 新晶圓廠的製程和產能,以配合 Diodes 的策略發展計畫。」

Diodes 預計利用該設施來驗證 CMOS 和 BiCMOS 製程和進行生產,以支援多個類比產品線,包括電源管理 IC、訊號鏈和標準產品,以及數個高效能分離產品系列。
