Micron tips DRAM delays due to Xi’an lockdown

Micron said it was in compliance with the Xi-an government’s city closure and that this has reduced the workforce at its Xi’an site with an impact on output levels of DRAM assembly and test operations there. Micron added that it was looking to increase the use of subcontractor partners to cover for this.

“We project that these efforts will allow us to meet most of our customer demand, however there may be some near-term delays as we activate our network,” Micron said in a statement.

“New or more stringent restrictions impacting our operations in Xi’an may be increasingly difficult to mitigate. We will continue to address the situation proactively and work closely with our customers, suppliers and logistics partners to ensure we minimize any impact to delivery schedules.”

While Xi-an has imposed strict stay-at-home rules and shut down city transportation, according to reports, it is also believed that the Omicron Covid-19 spike has peaked in the city.
