美光确认三年前出售的DRAM芯片存在问题

发布时间:2020-06-30 17:42:13 阅读: 来源:灌装机厂家

元器件交易网讯 2月13日消息,据外媒报道,思科2月12日宣布将出资6.55亿美元补偿客户购买的存在问题的网络硬件内存芯片。美光立即于2月13日发表声明,确认了三年前卖给客户一些动态随机存取存储器芯片存在问题。

“美光承认,它在过去的几年中,曾主动与某些受到相对较少产品问题影响的客户合作。”

思科拒绝评论它是否会向内存供应商寻求补偿。无论如何,美光不期望这个问题影响到公司的财政。

美光称,“公司并不期望出现该产品引起的任何材料费用。”

上面提到的美光卷进此事是来自加拿大皇家银行分析师Doug Freedman的消息。

思科在公布第二季度财报时披露这一问题,它称2005-2010年这些芯片是由某个独家供应商制造的。据说它们用于思科大量的产品中。

思科CEO John Chambers周三在接受采访时说,其他网络公司可能也存在问题。“这是一个行业问题。”

Freedman称美光可能会发现伴随此次事件而来的是,思科或其他客户转向其他内存芯片供应商。这个问题可能再次出现在新闻中。可以肯定的是,很少有芯片供应商在制造上不出现一些小问题。

该公司表示,“半导体器件是高度复杂的设备,当勘误表问题出现,美光就主动确认并解决任何潜在的问题。”

外媒原文如下:

Cisco Systems on Wednesday announced a $655 million charge to compensate customers for selling them networking hardware whose memory chips may fail under certain circumstances. It wouldn"t name the supplier, but Micron Technology has emerged as a safe bet.

While not commenting on Cisco"s situation specifically, Micron on Thursday issued a statement disclosing a problem on some dynamic random access memory chips, or DRAMs, sold to customers more than three years ago.

“Micron acknowledges that it has worked proactively over the past few years with certain infrastructure customers affected by a relatively small number of product failures arising under specific usage conditions,” the statement reads.

Cisco had declined to comment on whether it would seek reimbursement from the memory supplier. Micron, in any case, said it doesn"t expect the issue to hurt its finances.

“The company does not anticipate any material charges arising out of this product issue,” Micron said.

Micron"s seeming involvement was noted earlier Thursday by Doug Freedman, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets.

Cisco, which disclosed the issue along with its second quarter financial results, said the chips were manufactured by a single supplier between 2005 and 2010. It said they were used in a number of Cisco products, and were determined to have a potential to fail in a limited number of circumstances.

John Chambers, Cisco"s chief executive, added in an interview Wednesday that other networking companies may also have an issue. “This will be an industry problem,” he said.

Freedman said Micron may find Cisco or other customers turning to other memory suppliers in the wake of the incident, and agrees that the problem may pop up in the news again. “I don"t know that this is the last we"ve heard of it,” he said.

To be sure, there are few chip suppliers that haven"t faced manufacturing glitches at times.

“Semiconductor devices are highly complex devices, and when errata issues arise, Micron works proactively to identify and resolve any potential issues,” the company said.
