United Microelectronics adds $609M to capex budget for 28nm capacity

  • Capex-conservative United Microelectronics' (UMC) board approves an additional capex budget of NT$18.18B ($609M) for expanding the foundry's 28nm manufacturing capacity.
  • The company said its capacity has reached a capacity of 10K wafers on the size, with plans to expand it gradually in 2014 according to demand.
  • Digitimes reports that industry experts see 28nm tech contributing only 1%-2% of UMC's revenue in 2013, but the "proportion is expected to climb substantially in 2014."
