Sil-Terra Sale to Chinese Party Aborted

Khazanah Nasional Berhad's sale of 98% stake in Silterra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. to a Chinese party has been called off, sources said. The sale has been aborted as per directives of government, Business Times reported. “The sale to the Chinese party has been aborted, but SilTerra may still be up for sale to a Malaysian party,” an industry source said. Khazanah board, at a meeting in November decided to abort the sale to a Chinese semiconductor player it had been in talks with, New Straits Times reported. “Apart from saving some 1,000 Malaysian jobs at SilTerra and its supporting industries, the government is also mindful that SilTerra’s operations are vital to training curriculums at local universities, along with the fact that the country’s semiconductor industry remains attractive to both new and existing investors,” noted a source. Khazanah did not respond to Business Times’ email query on SilTerra on December 9, 2014, New Straits Times reported.

Sources Say Khazanah In Final Stake Of Silterra Stake Sale

Khazanah Nasional Berhad is planning to sell stake in Silterra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. On June 19, 2014, People close to the matter said that Khazanah is in final stage of stake sale. According to the news report, it is said that Silterra will be sold to a Chinese buyer. A source added, “Khazanah is currently awaiting nod from the government to proceed with the transaction. If the sale goes through, Khazanah will completely lose control of the company.” Business Times reported that the decision to sell the stake is due to the cumulative losses of MYR 1.7 billion made by the company since 2011.

CMT Multiple Time Programming Solution Qualified in SilTerra 110Nm High Voltage Technology

Silterra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. and Chip Memory Technology Inc. jointly announced the production release of Multiple-Time-Programming (MTP) embedded non-volatile memory solution in SilTerra's advanced 110nm High Voltage technology. CMT's MTP memory macro is now silicon characterized and qualified on SilTerra's 110nm High Voltage technology, cost optimized with no additional masking layer nor special process module needed. The MTP macro has passed 10,000 times of endurance read-write cycles followed by 1000 hours of burn-in reliability tests. The IP has also successfully demonstrated 10 years of data retention reliability and met industry recognized JEDEC standard. This MTP memory IP will play a pivotal role in SilTerra's effort to win in the fast growing touch controller Integrated Circuit (IC) market which is now a standard feature in all the mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets, multimedia players, laptops, digital cameras, GPS as well as other computing, consumer, automotive, industrial and medical applications. This MTP memory IP will add programmability to the touch controller IC in a single chip resulting in more elegant and smaller design by eliminating the older approach of using multiple external NOR Flash or EEPROM discrete memory chips. The single chip touch controller IC helps customers shrink the board footprint design and hence reduces overall BOM cost.
