NEC Corp.'s NEC Electronics Inc. unit said it will build a $1.4-billion advanced semiconductor plant at its facility in Roseville, about 30 miles northeast of Sacramento. The Japanese company said the new plant will start operation in 2002 and will create 700 jobs. It would make high-performance multimedia chips, system-on-a-chip processors and 256-megabit and 1-gigabit dynamic random-access memory chips, or DRAMs.
