The developer of controllers for solid-state drives Phison Electronics is making Napoleonic plans for the next five years. Now its products are manufactured using 28-nm technology, but by 2025 it expects to switch to a 7-nm process technology. Together with other efforts, this will allow the company to become a world leader in its market segment.
At least, the founder and head of Phison Electronics, Khein-Seng Pua, shared such considerations at the reporting event, as noted by the DigiTimes resource. The company is now actively cooperating with the Chinese manufacturer of solid-state memory YMTC, and next year Phison’s revenues in China will reach significant levels. Efforts by Chinese manufacturers to strengthen “semiconductor sovereignty” should help Phison increase revenues.
In the current period, the situation is not entirely unambiguous. On the one hand, in the first half of the year, the company increased its revenue by 24% (to $ 800 million) compared to the same period last year, while its net profit increased by 85.4%. The demand for controllers for drives with PCI Express 4.0 interface has grown significantly. On the other hand, second-quarter revenues declined 15.6% sequentially due to lower demand for client drives caused by the coronavirus. In annual comparison, revenue increased by 11%. Net income declined sequentially by 37.6%, but increased by 51.7% YoY.
