Kyocera begins construction on third manufacturing facility at its Kyoto Ayabe complex in Japan

19 April 2016
Kyocera Corporation announced that it will begin construction this week on a third manufacturing facility at its Kyoto Ayabe complex in Ayabe City, Kyoto Pref., Japan. The new facility will produce miniaturized, low-profile organic packages to house microelectronic devices used inside smartphones, tablet PCs and related mobile communications equipment.

Kyocera’s microelectronic packaging technology can facilitate higher functionality, greater integration and slimmer designs in mobile communications equipment. The market for Kyocera’s package products is expected to grow as consumer devices incorporate multiple internal modules for camera, wireless, power amplifier and control functions.

In addition, the expanding IoT (Internet of Things) trend is expected to generate new applications for Kyocera products as wireless chips and sensor chips are increasingly modularized into packaging solutions based on organic material technology.

Until April 1, 2016, the Kyoto Ayabe complex was operated by the former Kyocera Circuit Solutions, Inc. (“KCS”), Kyocera’s wholly owned subsidiary specializing in high-density organic wiring boards, packages and large-scale printed motherboards for semiconductor devices. On April 1, 2016, KCS was merged into Kyocera Corporation as part of a business integration strategy to enhance the development of new products and markets while further expanding business synergies.

Since 2005, Kyocera’s Kyoto Ayabe complex has manufactured a wide range of organic packaging products, including FC-BGA (flip-chip ball grid array) substrates for high-end application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). Over the years, Kyocera has cultivated cutting-edge technologies in high-density wiring and automated production processes to create smaller, lower-profile products. Kyocera’s second facility at Kyoto Ayabe was added in the summer of 2014, and the third, targeted for completion in December 2016, will strategically expand the company’s capabilities.

The floor space of new plant will be 25,420 m2. Groundbreaking is planned on April 21, 2016 and completion in December 2016. The plant will start its operations in April 2017.
