About Nanya Technology
Focusing on DRAM
Nanya Technology holds innovation as our core value which is realized in the company’s dedication to research and develop, design, manufacture, marketing, and sales of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM). Nanya’s commitment to research and development has enabled the company to accumulate extensive DRAM expertise and intellectual property. As a true leader in corporate citizenship, Nanya has proactively implemented green manufacturing technology. Nanya has harnessed the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to significantly upgrade production capacity and efficiency. The result is a company that provides industry leading DRAM solutions in a way that is environmentally friendly to our planet.
Being the Best DRAM Partner for Smart World
DRAM is a critical component of the smart world. Smartphones and servers used in data centers have been the primary drivers of DRAM development and demand. In the 5G and AI era, demand will continue to grow as the applications of DRAM use further diversify with the boom of various smart-connected devices.
Providing value added products and services to customers is imperative at Nanya. Nanya’s focus on innovation resulted in the successful development of 10nm class DRAM process technologies which will enable the next three generations of DRAM solutions including DDR5 and LPDDR5 products. The first-generation 10nm class process technology’s leading product (1Anm), an 8Gb DDR4 chip has begun small-volume production. Meanwhile, the second product DDR5 has begun pilot production. The development of the second-generation 10nm class process technology (1Bnm) and its leading product have begun pilot production and expected for small-volume production in year 2023. Combined, Nanya will provide customers with a complete product lineup to meet the rising needs in the 5G era and smart world.
Nanya’s vision is to become the best DRAM Partner for Smart World. With accumulating R&D experience and cultivating excellent technology team, we successfully transformed into a self-development process technology IDM company.
Nanya’s new fab groundbreaking ceremony was held in 2022. Nanya planned to invest approximately NT$360 billion to upgrade the existing fab and build an advanced fab with a double-deck cleanroom. This new fab will allow Nanya to implement several generations of self-developed 10nm-class process technology and adopt AI technology to improve manufacturing performance. The investment plan will take three phases to reach approximately 45,000 wafer capacity per month, the DRAM bit growth will achieve 120% upon completion and create estimated NT$70 billion annual production value. The construction is scheduled to be completed by 2025. The project will eventually create 3,000 new high-tech jobs while supporting thousands of additional indirect job opportunities, enhancing Nanya’s international competitiveness as Taiwan’s DRAM leader and push Nanya to the next level as a key memory provider for the globe.

As one of the key members of the semiconductor industry, Nanya deeply understands the impact of environmental disasters and water shortages on company operations. In 2022, Nanya released its first TCFD Report and the company’s emission reduction goals validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), making the company the first DRAM company in the world to be validated. Through the integration of green management, Nanya has enhanced climate resiliency, reduced carbon emissions for renewable energy to reach at least 25% of electricity use in 2030, launched various energy saving projects and deployed a sophisticated water recovery and recycling process. This is just the beginning. Nanya will continue to contribute our innovation and strength to pursue the sustainability of the environment.
Furthermore, Nanya participates in the SEMI Taiwan Sustainable Manufacturing Committee and joins the Semiconductor Climate Consortium (SCC) as founding member, and engages with supply chains to promote sustainable partnership programs and move towards net zero. Together, making contribution to a more sustainable world.
Employees are the most valuable assets for our sustainable business. Nanya implements systematic and multidimensional talent cultivation programs; provides support for employee career development; establishes a wide range of incentives to attract and retain excellent talent. To fortify the development of long-term semiconductor expertise, Nanya enables industry-academia collaboration, high-tech talent cultivation, seminars and lectures, internships and other education programs.
Nanya’s dedication in Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) areas has resulted in awards and recognitions. In 2022, Nanya once again included into Dow Jones Sustainability (DJSI) World Index, and included into Dow Jones Emerging Market Index for the fourth time, ranked No.1 among the global memory industry. Also received the CDP Water Security “A List Leadership Level” and Climate Change “Leadership Level”, GCSA Outstanding Professional Award, TCSA Top 10 Taiwanese Companies Sustainability Model Award, National Enterprise Environmental Protection Award, FTSE4Good TIP Taiwan ESG Index, Top 5% in the Corporate Governance Evaluation of Taiwan Stock Exchange Corporation, affirming the path to sustainable development.
Nanya will continue to put our three strategies; creating shared value, strengthening partnerships with the stakeholders and local community, and implementing sustainable governance, into practice for promoting a sustainable business while enhancing international competitiveness.
