Samsung trims 2006 NAND flash bit growth by 10pp

  • Samsung Electronics trimmed its forecast for 2006 NAND flash supply bit growth by 10 percentage points to 171% because of the delayed ramp of its 8Gbit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash during the first half of this year, according to company semiconductor business unit senior vice president Il-ung Kim at a July 14 investors conference.

    Samsung reported MLC NAND flash represented 23% of its total NAND flash output in the second quarter, versus the previous guidance of about 30% stated in the first quarter, said Kim.
