PSPC boosts shipments to Samsung Electronics

Posted on November 11, 2016

PHOENIX Semiconductor Philippines Corp. (PSPC) on Thursday said its third quarter shipments of memory devices to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. have exceeded expectations.

In a disclosure to the stock exchange, PSPC said it shipped 160 million units, with an export value of $452 million, to the South Korean tech giant during the July to September period. The export value is 62% higher than the $279 million registered in the second quarter.

PSPC said it produced and shipped 57 million 8- and 4-gigabyte dynamic random access modules (DRAM) and flip-chip memory chips in the third quarter. It also assembled 88 million units of double data rate third generation (DDR3) DRAM devices and produced 15 million branded memory cards.

“We aim to increase production of the double data rate fourth generation (DDR4) memory chips in the fourth quarter,” PSPC President Byeong-chun Lee said.

The company said fourth quarter production orders are expected to hit 210 million units of memory devices, while production of DDR4 chips are expected to go up 62% to 78 million units from the previous quarter.

PSPC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of South Korea’s STS Semiconductor and Telecommunications Co., is one of the Philippines’ top semiconductor product manufacturers and exporters which produces units in its facility in Clark Freeport, Pampanga.

Shares in PSPC slid 0.69% on Thursday to P1.44 apiece. -- Janina C. Lim

SSPC opens $51-M facility in Clark for production of latest multimedia cards

SFA SEMICON Philippines Corp. (SSPC) opened its $51-million manufacturing facility in Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga yesterday, where it plans to start producing the latest version of embedded multimedia cards (eMMC) found in tablets, smartphones, and GPS tracking systems.

In a disclosure to the stock exchange on Tuesday, SSPC said the new facility forms part of the second phase of its manufacturing building in Pampanga, and will have a gross manufacturing footprint of 18,000 square meters. The company targets to accommodate service contracts from new clients with the facility.

SSPC is the local manufacturing arm of Korean firm SFA Semicon Korea. The company has a business transaction agreement to supply its products to Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. until May 2019.

“The Phase 2 expansion project reflects the commitment of Korea’s SFA Group to make SSPC its manufacturing hub in the region,” SFA Semicon Korea Chief Operating Officer Byeongchun Lee was quoted as saying in the disclosure.

Prior to the opening of the facility, SSPC was already the top export revenue earning locator in Clark Freeport Zone. It expects to further increase its export revenues with this expansion.

With the opening of the plant, SSPC said it will now start manufacturing the newest version of eMMC chips for which the company has invested $4.3 million.

SSPC described an eMMC chip as an advanced, high-performance NAND flash memory designed for mobile applications used in tablets, smartphones, GPS systems, eReaders, and other computing devices.

Aside from eMMCs, the company also produces DDR4 generation dynamic random access chips.
