Austria’s AT&S to supply more substrate to AMD from upcoming Kulim plant

Austria’s AT&S to supply more substrate to AMD from upcoming Kulim plant

10 Nov 2023

Austrian printed circuit boards manufacturer AT&S is preparing facilities for an expansion of capacity for US chipmaker AMD at AT&S new plant in Kulim, Kedah.

“AMD’s quality requirements are very high, which makes us very proud to have achieved the ramp-up so fast.

“Currently, we are preparing facilities at our new plant in Kulim, Malaysia to expand our AMD capacity,” said AT&S chief executive officer Andreas Gerstenmayer in a statement today.

He said the demand for computer processors and graphic processor units for data centres is expected to continue growing healthily in the next couple of years, which will help to strengthen the partnership between AMD and AT&S.

“Fuelled by new technologies like artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality, demand for data storage, transmission and analysis is rising globally,” said Gerstenmayer.

Reuters had previously reported that AT&S will begin production for AMD in Malaysia next year.

Gerstenmayer said AT&S is one of the leaders for embedding microchips and components that regulate the associated power and information flows into monolithic systems that make sure that the pathways stay as short as possible.

This ensures information can travel at maximum speed without any significant losses.

“The big substrates that are necessary to build such integrated systems are optimized for reliability and efficiency by using AT&S’ sophisticated simulation technology.

“We are among the technology leaders in the substrate market and have an additional advantage because we can offer manufacturing capacity not only in China but also in Malaysia and Austria,” he added.
