Apple’s appetite for NAND Flash causes global shortage

Fri, Oct 9, 2009


Apple’s appetite for NAND flash has once again outpaced supply, in large part due to the continuing popularity of the iPhone and the iPod Touch.  In response to the shortage, Taiwan’s memory module manufacturers are adjusting their business midstream.

Digitimes notes:

Taiwan-based memory module houses are moving to diversify their NAND flash suppliers to minimize procurement risk, according to industry sources. NAND flash supply has reportedly become tighter as major chip producers Samsung Electronics, Toshiba, Micron and Hynix Semiconductor favor demand for Apple devices.
