Micron Signs to Revise Supply Deal with Inotera Memories

Micron Technology announced a joint venture partner Formosa Plastics Group to the change terms of its supply agreement with Inotera Memories.

The two companies have an equal stake in Inotera Memories, but Micron is able to reserve all of Inotera's manufacturing output. The companies are in disagreement over an additional revision as Formosa Plastics claims Micron does not provide financial support to help Inotera migrate to 20nm chip production.
