Fujitsu is trying to sell one fab to UMC and another to ON Semi amid rumours that it may pull out of the chip business.

“No concrete decision has been made,” says a Fujitsu spokesman, “we’re not thinking about withdrawing from manufacturing in Mie and Aizu but we are studying various possibilities including co-operation with other companies.”

The discussions with UMC relate to a fab in Mie (pictured), the discussions with ON relate to a fab in Aizu, Fukushima province.

Last year Fujitsu sold its analogue and microcontroller business to Spansion.
