About two-thirds of production on the advanced 300mm wafer line affected by Friday’s fire is automotive chips, CEO Hidetoshi Shibata told an online briefing.
Renesas may not be able to replace all the destroyed equipment within a month, Shibata said, meaning that a return to full production could take longer.
The company, he added, may be able to rely on other plants to replace around two-thirds of the lost production, which is worth around 17 billion yen ($156 million) a month.
