to consolidate Taiwan's memory industry behind the banner of Taiwan Memory Company seems to have become a failure before it even has started, as two of the major players has as of today pulled out of the venture.
Micron and Nanya has decided to pull out of Taiwan Memory Company and instead focus on its joint venture, Inotera Memories. This is a huge blow to Taiwan Memory Company which was hoping to be able to use the technology IP that Micron and Nanya holds.
Micron felt that it would lose its edge over its competitors, as they would gain access to its IP which it feels is ahead of its Taiwanese competitors. We will have to wait and see how things play out, but judging by this, it seems like Taiwan Memory Company is set to fail before it has even started.
