[The Chosun Ilbo, November 13 2007] Korean Chip Makers Worried About Hynix Tech 'Leak'

Controversy is growing over Hynix Semiconductor's plan to provide 66-nanometer process technology to ProMOS Technologies, its Taiwanese strategic business partner.

Some Korean chip makers on Monday expressed concern about the plan, saying that since Taiwanese chip makers have had a hard time developing the 60-nano level production process, the provision of the technology by Hynix will lead to greatly reducing the technological gap between Korean and Taiwanese companies.
