He said at this stage of the project "Micron" for the production of 0.09 micron chips actually run, but to implement "Angstrema" long, which could lead to the fact that in 2011 Russia will receive two plants with identical process parameters, which will compete in the the same product niches.
"This volatility in a market of electronic components and downs of his volumes as expected. It is sensible to make these two projects on time and technological standards. For example, a focus on the development of technology for 0.09 micron and the second to put the future of 0.09. Now, We have received instructions from the Government of the Russian Federation to prepare a proposal on the possibility of microelectronic production ", - said Yuri Borisov, noting that the merger be carried out within a single legal entity.
"The - the process difficult, because the existing two projects are private companies - Sistema group companies, and" angstrom ", but both projects are credited to VEBe, supported through the implementation of federal target programs, so the state is not an outside observer, but serious player who can contribute to this association, "- noted the deputy minister.
According to him, not excluding the option that the first stage, the State will be the dominant owner, but after some time, will offer minority shareholders the option to repurchase.
"The situation is not hopeless, we are in contact with the owners, discussing the various scenarios for. I believe that the association needs to hold a maximum comfort for all parties", - said Deputy Minister.
As the "Interfax" the press service of "SITRONICS" (RTS: SITR), a draft "Micron" on 0.09 micron already received the support of the supervisory board "Rosnano and developed independently. "We see the markets in which our products will be in demand, and have experience working on them." Micron "is the absolute leader of Russian Microelectronics, therefore, quite logically, if the consolidation of the industry will be around," - explained in the company.
Zamgendirektora "Angstrema Eugene Kolosova told Interfax that the whole company is not opposed to unification, but finds it necessary to give first attention to technology and product line. "First of all, we have to talk about the market and products for niche and demand, and only then we can start to explore the organizational and legal issues" - she said.
As reported, "SITRONICS" and goskorporatsiya "Rosnano" will invest 16.5 billion rubles in the project to establish the production of integrated circuits topological size of 90 nanometers (0.09 microns). The project will create a project company, the share of "Rosnano" which amount to 49%
"Rosnano" invest in the project 6.5 billion rubles. "SITRONICS" pay their share of the project company's capital equipment for production of chips at the plant "Micron", which is estimated to cost 6,5-7 billion rubles. The remaining 3-3,5 billion rubles of the parties to attract. This may be bank loans or financing from the Sistema "- the parent company" SITRONICS "- told a source close to the project.
The Supervisory Board "Rosnano" approved participation in the project "SITRONICS" in early July. The next step is to sign an investment agreement, which will specify detailed parameters of the project and the capital structure of future joint ventures.
Series production is planned for launch in late 2011 - early 2012. 0.09 micron chips can be used in industrial electronics, auto electronics, digital television, navigation systems GLONASS / GPS. It also planned to produce chips with enhanced functionality for biometric passports and other personal documents, banking and social cards, SIM-cards and RFID-tags.
At the present time "SITRONICS" is already in Zelenograd manufacture chips on 0.18 micron technology.
Also, the application of "Rosnano" to finance a project to produce 0.09 micron chips, and filed a major competitor "SITRONICS" - OJSC "angstrom-T." Scientific and Technical Council on 23 June goskorporatsii recognized project Angstrema "relevant international scientific and technical level and recommended that the supervisory board" Rosnano "to decide on its financing.
"Angstrom-T's plans in 2011 in Zelenograd to organize the production of semiconductor components to the 0.09 micron, and the necessary investment in the project are about 190 million euros.
