But, according to research compiled by TrendForce, the impact on the production of DRAM will not be significant. The market tracking company believes that Taiwanese DRAM industry has remained largely unaffected, primarily due to their robust earthquake preparedness measures. There are four memory makers in Taiwan: Micron, the sole member of the "big three" memory manufacturers on the island, runs two fabs. Meanwhile among the smaller players is Nanya (which has one...
