TSMC to supply 100 mil. new chips for Apple

World-leading chipmaker TSMC is reportedly gearing up to start mass production on "A11" chips for its key client Apple Inc. next month, with the goal of producing 100 million chips by year-end. Citing sources from TSMC's supply chain, the Chinese-language Economic Daily News said Apple had demanded the firm produce at least 50 million chips by July, adding that the chipmaker's record-breaking production goals could reflect Apple's confidence in the sales performance of their 10th-anniversary iPhone.

Toshiba wants Westinghouse to file for bankruptcy

Toshiba Corp wants its U.S nuclear unit to file for Chapter 11 protection from creditors as early as Tuesday, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter, seeking a quick ringfencing of losses before the Japanese parent's financial year ends. While a Westinghouse bankruptcy filing would help limit future losses for Toshiba, it still falls far short of drawing a line under its problems. Any filing would trigger complex negotiations between Toshiba, the nuclear unit and creditors, and could embroil the U.S and Japanese governments given the scale of the collapse and U.S. state loan guarantees for new reactors.

Intel launches Optane Memory M.2 cache SSDs for consumer market

Intel officially launched their first Optane product, the SSD DC P4800X enterprise drive. The Intel Optane Memory SSD uses one or two single-die packages of 3D XPoint non-volatile memory to provide capacities of 16GB or 32GB. The controller gets away with a much smaller package than most SSDs since it only supports two PCIe 3.0 lanes and does not have an external DRAM interface. Because only two PCIe lanes are used by the drive, it is keyed to support M.2 type B and M slots.

Samsung drops planned split

Assailed by a shambolic recall and embroiled in South Korea’s wide-ranging corruption scandal, Samsung Electronics Co backed away from a planned corporate restructuring. Following the embarrassing recall of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone and under pressure from activist shareholders to improve corporate governance, Samsung last year said that it was considering splitting the company in two. Vice chairman Jay Y. Lee, heir to the parent Samsung group, has since been arrested and indicted for bribery, along with four other senior executives, in connection with the graft scandal that saw former South Korean president Park Geun-hye impeached.
