Behind the scenes at Lexar
Lexar Media has released a behind the scenes look at their production facilities. As part of the massive Micron Corp, the wafers are made in the US - they're the only manufacturers that make memory there. These wafers are then shipped to Asia and are assembled and tested mainly by hand, albeit it in impressive facilities. Each and every speed-rated card is then tested, something I didn't expect.
