Super Talent Expands U.S. Manufacturing Facility to
Fourteen Surface Mount (SMT) Lines
Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and
flash products, has recently completed extensive upgrades and expansion to their
San Jose manufacturing facility. The latest capacity increase makes Super
Talent's headquarters the largest and most advanced memory module manufacturing
facility in North America.
Super Talent has owned and operated their memory factory in San Jose,
California for many years. In the second half of 2006, the company upgraded many
of their older machines with state-of-the-art equipment. The company's new fully
automated solder screen printers are faster and require less manpower to
operate. The new ultra high speed chip shooters are much smaller than the older
models, and can place up to 10,000 passive components per hour - an astounding
four components per second. Many of the latest resistors and capacitors,
commonly called passive components, are smaller than the head of a pin. These
machines are not only incredibly fast, but they are calibrated to exacting
precision for extremely accurate chip placement. The company has added more than
a dozen new pick-and-place machines and solder reflow ovens.
According to Mr. CH Lee, Vice President of Business Operations for Super
Talent Technology, "While virtually all our competitors have taken their
production off shore, we're very proud to be reinvesting in high-tech
manufacturing operations on American soil."
This factory expansion brings Super Talent's USA manufacturing capacity to
1.4 Million units per month, far exceeding any rival memory producers. Products
built in this facility include DDR and DDR2 DRAM modules, USB Flash drives, IDE
Flash drives, and a variety of other memory products for servers and consumer
electronics. Super Talent is a world leader in high reliability server memory,
extreme performance DDR2 modules for gaming PC's, and custom USB Flash drives.
Mr. Phil Kwon, Director of Channel Sales for Samsung Electronics America, one
of Super Talent's primary component suppliers, said "Samsung is very happy to be
part of Super Talent's growth and success." Mr. Kwon added, "We regard Super
Talent as a strategic partner due to their broad portfolio of patents and to
their massive manufacturing and sales capabilities."
Super Talent's new SMT lines are environmentally friendly, using about 50%
less power than the company's older equipment. These new SMT lines are also
certified to produce "green" RoHS compliant products. With the exception of a
handful of legacy memory products, Super Talent only uses tin based solder and
lead-free components to ensure that all products meet the rigid RoHS
Super Talent Technology Corporation designs and manufactures a full range of
DDR and DDR2 memory modules and Flash based storage devices for computers and
consumer electronics. Based in San Jose, California, Super Talent utilizes its
state-of-the-art factory and leading-edge components to produce high quality
products with outstanding reliability. Super Talent has over 100 patent
applications in Flash and DRAM technology.
