Highlights of the day: ABF substrate demand robust
DIGITIMES staff 0

Demand for ABF substrates from chip vendors has been strong, wiht new orders placed now unlikely to be delivered until 2023. Some chip vendors have offered higher prices trying to jump the queue, but ABF substrate suppliers have had to turn them down because of their tight capacity. Chipmakers are also striving to secure supply for aQFN leadframe, with the segment's order visibility already extending to February 2022. Memory prices are poised to rise in third-quarter 2021, with NAND flash pricing to climb faster than DRAM.

ABF substrate suppliers see clear order visibility through 2023: Taiwan ABF substrate makers have been running their production lines at full capacity, with new orders unlikely to be fulfilled until 2023, according to industry sources.

Chipmakers striving to obtain stable aQFN leadframe supply: Chipmakers including MediaTek, Qualcomm and Realtek Semiconductor are striving to secure stable supply of leadframes for use in aQFN packaging, with related leadframe suppliers already seeing order visibility extended to February 2022, according to industry sources.

NAND flash prices to rise faster than DRAM in 3Q21: Contract market prices for NAND flash memory are poised to rise faster than those for DRAM chips in the third quarter of 2021, according to industry sources.
