Based in Taiwan’s Hsinchu Science and Industrial Park, Macronix is a premier designer and manufacturer of integrated devices for the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) market—producing a full range of NOR Flash, NAND Flash, and ROM products. Established in 1989, Macronix is the first semiconductor manufacturer to be certified by the Social Accountability International Standard (SA 8000:2001) in Hsinchu Science Park, home to many competing foundries. The company caters to a wide variety of industries with its technologies—computer, telecommunications, consumer, and automotive.
Macronix operates three semiconductor foundries: Fab 1 (focuses on designing niche logic products and 6-inch wafer fabrication), Fab 2 (non-volatile memory products and 8-inch wafer fabrication), and Fab 5 (non-volatile memory products and 12-inch wafer fabrication). Fab 1 outputs 37,000 6-inch wafers per month based on 0.35um to 1.0um technologies. Fab 2 produces 55,000 8-inch wafers per month. Fab 5 yields 20,000 12-inch wafers per month.
Macronix International Co., Ltd. has a long-standing relationship with video game giant Nintendo. In 2001, Nintendo purchased USD$75 million worth of integrated circuit manufacturing equipment to then lease to Macronix. This semiconductor machinery is housed at Fab 2 in Taiwan. Nintendo benefits from this deal by having a completely dedicated facility for manufacturing components for its platforms including the GameCube and Game Boy Advance. In 2011, Macronix’s revenue rose 18% due to deliveries of its niche memory chips in support of the Nintendo 3DS console.
Today, Macronix employs a 4,800-strong workforce and takes in nearly USD$1 billion in revenues. Constantly innovating its core products, Macronix holds 4,500 patents and dedicates 10-12% of its annual revenue to research and development.
