Nanya mulling plans to expand DRAM capacity, sources claim

Nanya Technology will likely raise its capex budget for 2010 to top NT$20 billion (US$627 million), up from the company's most recent estimate of NT$19 billion, according to industry sources. The revised spending will be devoted to its migration to more advanced processes, and also to expanding capacity.

Nanya is planning to ramp capacity at its 12-inch fab from the current 30,000 wafers to 50,000-60,000 wafers, the sources revealed.
