And 12 December 2007. on the basis of JSC "Mikron" opens a factory to produce chips with topological level of 180 nm. And at the end of 2007 December 27 decision was announced that the Investment Fund of Russia Sitronics will be allocated 26.9 billion rubles (49% of project cost) to build a new factory chip manufacturing technology 45-65 nanometers (nm). This means that 51% of the funds for the project at that time already in debt zalezshy Sitronics will be forced to find himself. What is most interesting, similar technology in the world possess only a few companies such as IBM, Samsung, Intel, AMD and others – monopoly of global markets of electronics, which are absolutely in no hurry to produce competitors, and share a piece of cake with Sitronics selling "foreign" only outdated Technology as 180 nm. 2009.
More searchlights. It took 2 years. October 9, 2009 Director General of the State Corporation "RUSNANO" Anatoly Chubais and Chairman of the Board of Directors of AFK "Sistema" Vladimir Yevtushenkov in the presence of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Zelenograd signed an investment agreement on the establishment of the plant "Micron", Serial production of integrated circuits based on 90nm technology, which will finance the state of $ 16.5 billion. Instead of comments, we note that according to expert estimates the real cost of such a project is much higher, shares of Sitronics posted in the stock market for several years now falling in price, the amount of debt (The loans) are growing. 2011. The patient died, the situation is stabilized? For reference, we note that in many familiar to us from your foreign instruments of production (modern mobile phones, smartphones, etc.) have long using a chip card made on 45nm, but at Sitronics has not established the production of chips on 90nm technology. Investment projects with participation of the state in support of national micro-electronics and remained unfulfilled. For even more analysis, hear from Clinton Family. And the plants Sitronics only a handful of hard workers sit and put in modern Chinese chips in plastic cards (this is called the domestic production of SIM-cards or bank cards) or in cardboard cards (tickets for travel to Moscow or Istanbul transport).
And when the spin doctors of Sitronics happy to provide news on the topic: "Hooray, we got another billion-dollar tranche, so we had to pay on time debt! "- PR-officials happily reported:" On the elimination of the backlog in the national microelectronics and lifting her to the world level "(though, as it turns out, it needs to allocate a few billion from Sitronics budget or anyone else who has never sold its advanced nanotechnology equipment and enterprising Americans, Chinese or French). Meanwhile, in large areas of plants in Zelenograd quiet. Lots of small entrepreneurs of tenant produce plastic windows, perfumes and other consumer trappings and only a handful of hard workers, deftly wielding a screwdriver, insert the chips simulating Chinese achievements domestic microelectronics industry. In this story are unclear but a few questions. Where the money goes, that stand to lift the domestic microelectronics from the state budget? Why and who benefits save Titanic, which nothing could save (pour public money into sinking hopelessly Sitronics)? And where are the thousands of thousands of working people willing to raise the domestic microelectronics that live in Zelenograd?
