LSI Logic joined forces with Kawasaki Steel.

The Milpitas, Calif.-based maker of integrated circuits said it established a company with Kawasaki to build a $100-million factory in Japan. The new firm, Nihon Semiconductor, will produce silicon wafers and integrated circuits under license from LSI Logic, which will buy the output for use in Japan, the United States and Europe. The plant is to be completed in mid-1987 and employ 250 by the end of 1988. LSI called it "a major element in our worldwide manufacturing strategy to support the burgeoning global market for very large scale application-specific integrated circuits."
