Sony and Fujitsu to Develop Semiconductors Jointly
Fujitsu Ltd. and Sony Corp., both of Tokyo, have teamed up to develop and produce advanced microchips to save on development costs. They plan to develop "system-on-a-chip" technology for use in digital cameras and other information equipment.
A new production line is planned for Fujitsu's plant in Mie Prefecture in western Japan, with operations slated to begin in autumn 1999. Fujitsu and Sony will share the $748 million cost of the production line.
