Renesas Electronics Corp. the world’s largest maker of microcontrollers used in cars and mobile phones, will restore its output level of the chips previously made at its Naka plant by using other factories by the end of September.
The company earlier expected production to recover by October, according to a statement to the Tokyo Stock Exchange today. Renesas halted production at the plant after a record earthquake in Japan on March 11.
Renesas, based in Kawasaki, Japan, halted production at its Naka plant in Ibaraki prefecture after the nation’s record earthquake damaged the factory, which makes 200-millimeter and 300-millimeter chips for cars and electronics. That forced carmakers to shut down their own production for several weeks. Via Bloomberg.
