Qimonda bankrupt!





Memory Giant Qimonda declares insolvency



Qimonda, once the second largest memory manufacturer, the company with lots of research credits under it's name, now after several setbacks has finally decided to declare insolvency. It is filing insolvency under German law, the equivalent of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States. Such action provides creditor protection while it reorganizes its operations and restructures its debt.
Qimonda is formed from the technology assets of Infineon technologies in 2006, but the famous Infineon brand was never able to lift Qimonda to popularity. Qimonda was criticized and disliked by many around the world, and has been facing issues from several other companies. It had made strategic alliances with Nanya, and that too turned sour pretty soon.

Even then Qimonda is a company with several research credits, several achievements under it's name. It was the first company to build on 300mm wafers which resulted greatly lowering production. It now ranks fourth in production, behind Samsung, Hynix, and Elpida. It has also successfully delivered the GDDR5 for the now-famous GPU from ATI i.e,. Radeon HD4870.
Qimonda was hit hard by many problems lately. And majority of them being the falling DRAM prices and the global credit crunch. And also it is likely to face problem of Oversupply and less demand. So the affect on product development of Qimonda is still unclear. But it is predicted that its condition might help the DRAM industry in one way or the other.

It is predicted that it may happen. But the memory chip prices are already all-time low now, so we cant be sure of anything yet.

Freeman is a physicist who saves the world (multiple times) with a crowbar. And he manages to get Alyx Vance to fall in love with him without needing mushrooms, stars or jumping on enemies.
