HKC Breaks Ground on Second G8.6 Fab

Chongqing HKC has broken ground on its second G8.6 fab in Chuzhou, China. The plan is to develop this factory to support 120K input substrates per month, but will start with a single 30K line that is due to start in around 18 months, in Q1 2019. However, the company is reported by local sources to still have a relatively low yield in its first fab which started at the end of Q1 this year.
