Elpida Files for Bankruptcy

Elpida DRAM ChipsElpida today filed for bankruptcy.  The troubled DRAM manufacturer has been unprofitable for the past five quarters and was facing repayment requirements that the current market would prevent the company from meeting.

The company is the world’s third largest DRAM maker, and is the last remaining Japanese DRAM company.  This is particularly stunning for DRAM industry veterans, since Japanese DRAM makers were at one time the largest in the world.  NEC used to be the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer based largely upon its DRAM revenues.
