The supply and demand of NAND flash chips are expected to reach an overall balance situation in the third quarter of 2006, as Samsung Electronics' multi level cell (MLC) production gradually improves, according to DRAM module makers.

Currently, supply of NAND flash is behind demand by a slight 2-3% and the range will narrow, as Samsung is gradually solving issues with its MLC production. The company expects half of its NAND flash production to use the method by the third quarter of next year, up from only 10% currently, the makers indicated.

Originally, Samsung planned to volume produce MLC NAND flash chips this February but kept delaying the schedule due to unsatisfactory yields. The company has been supplying single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash chips to Apple and did not commence shipping MLC NAND flash chips until recently, the makers said.

Tight NAND flash supply has worsened due mainly to the delayed shipments from Samsung, as Apple has booked 40% of Samsung's NAND flash capacity for its iPod nano, sources said.

Although Samsung is currently the world's top NAND flash maker with over half of the market, it has been aggressively developing MLC production, as the production costs of its SLC production are 30% higher than Toshiba's MLC production, DRAM module makers said.
