Toshiba bars Western Digital from 96-layer flash supplies

  • Release on:2017-08-08
Escalating their spat, Toshiba says Western Digital will not get supplies of 96-layer NAND flash.

“As of today, SanDisk will not receive any capacity from Fab 6 which includes the latest generation of 96-layer BiCS memory products,” says Toshiba.

SanDisk is the company which Western Digital bought  which had a jv with Toshiba sharing NAND fab operations.

Western Digital has responded with the the following statement:

“The JV operations are governed by agreements entered into by both partners. The agreements give our subsidiary SanDisk priority to participate in expansions and conversions of JV capacity, including for the latest generation of 96-layer BiCS flash memory products, through joint investments in Fab 6 equipment, and that is exactly what we intend to do. The terms of the agreements and our related legal rights are clear, and we remain confident that we will receive our share of any capacity from Fab 6. We are continuing our constructive dialogue with Toshiba on this and other matters.”
