South-of-the-Border Silicon via Bweek

Most of the world's computer chipmaking capacity is based in Asia, where outfits in China, Taiwan, Singapore, and Korea crank out the millions of silicon wafers needed for PCs, cell phones, and a myriad of other electronic devices.Aided by private U.S. real estate capital, the government of Mexico, and the Mexican state of Baja California, Ron Jones and Daniel Hill -- both chip-industry veterans -- say they're looking to build in the town of Mexicali a 10,000-acre industrial park that will be known as Silicon Border and cater to chipmakers and other high-tech businesses. Lisa pointed this article to me. This is a good initiative - spreading sources across continents - having a mega fab plant in North America is definitley needed - Remember epoxy resin shortage some years back as a plant manufacturing this in Japan had to shut down due to a fire. More investments in chip manufacturing has many ramifications - in general good for the consumer and the semiconductor industry.
