NAND Flash Prices Begin to Drop

NAND Flash Chips

Contract prices for NAND Flash chips went south this month and manufacturers who piled up stocks are in for some inventory pressure.

NAND prices have been on the up and up since June perhaps as a result of some price fixing among memory makers that the U.S. Department of Justice is now investigating.

Multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash prices posted a sequential drop of over 10% in the first half of September while prices of single-level cell (SLC) parts were relatively stable with only a single digit drop in price, according to figures from DRAMeXchange.
