Micron, MediaTek Consider Investments In Kingston Solutions

Micron Technology and MediaTek are both reportedly planning to contribute equity investments in eMMC-interface NAND device supplier Kingston Solutions (KSI), a joint venture between Kingston, Toshiba and Phison Electronics.

Kingston, Phison and Toshiba currently hold a 47%, 43% and 10% stake in KSI, respectively.

If the industry sources quoted by Digitimes.com are correct, KSI will become a strong eMMC device supplier after taking investments from Micron and MediaTek.

The new KSI will be able to optimize NAND flash from Toshiba, mobile RAM from Micron, eMMC controller chips from Phison, module production capacity at Kingston and be able to sell eMMC devices leveraging MediaTek's smartphone and tablet solutions, the sources added.

Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix, Micron and KSI are currently the major suppliers of eMMC/eMCP modules in the global market.
