Elpida Memory said Monday that it had restarted Japanese operations and resumed manufacturing of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) as well as testing and packaging of memory chips.

Akita Elpida Memory, a packaging and testing subsidiary of Elpida, is resuming operations following the restoration of the electrical power supply. Akita Elpida had not been in operation due to a power outage caused by the earthquake. The Akita Elpida plant is not in operation as of the morning of the April 8 due to a power shutdown caused by the earthquake. As soon as the electricity comes back on, normal business operations will resume. There is no damage to the manufacturing equipment.

Because Elpida outsources more than 90% of its packaging and testing operations to overseas firms, the impact on company earnings due to the shutdown of Akita Elpida is expected to be minimal.

The Hiroshima Plant suffered no impact because it is located in Hiroshima in the southwest of Japan, far from the northeastern regions hit by the earthquake.
