LISTED semiconductor firm Phoenix Semiconductor Philippines Corp (PSPC) said on Thursday it does not produce or supply memory semiconductor chips for the manufacture of the Samsung Note 7.
PSPC made the disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange following reports that Samsung is shutting down production of the Note 7 product line amid safety concerns.
PSPC supplies dynamic random access modules (DRAM) chips to South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.
“PSPC had previously issued a statement that it expected to manufacture 130 million units of the next-generation DDR4 8- and 4-gigabyte DRAM and flip-chip memory chips and memory cards in the third quarter. The purchase order for the period did not include any components for the Samsung Note 7,” the company said.
“The company reassured the investing public that PSPC is not in any way affected by the reported [Note 7] product pull-out. The memory cards currently under contract production are principally used in servers, high-end desktop PCs and laptops,” it added.
PSPC is set to disclose actual production for the third quarter upon confirmation of shipment data by next week.
Established in February 2011, PSPC is the local subsidiary of South Korean semiconductor company STS Semiconductor, which supplies memory chips for Samsung. The parent STS Semiconductor also has presence in China through PSTS.
It mainly produces memory chips and devices for computers, laptops and servers, as well as micro SD cards for mobile phones.
