Taiwan-based IC substrate maker Nan Ya Printed Circuit Board (NPC) generated revenues of NT$2.7 billion (US$83 million) in September 2009, up 3.16% on month, mainly due to growing demand for graphics and handset IC products, according to the company.

NPC indicated shipments of both HDI boards and flip-chip chip scale packaging (FC CSP) substrates used in handsets increased significantly in September, and demand for consumer electronics PCBs was also strong. In terms of the PC segment, orders for FC substrates used in graphics card ICs improved while chipsets stayed flat.

However, the company said it expects fourth-quarter revenues to decline due to lower shipment volumes because customers are concerned about inventory pileups for old products, while they are also conservative about new product sales. Current order visibility remains at one month, compared to 1.5 months seen typically in previous years.

Fellow maker Kinsus Interconnect Technology reported September revenues of NT$1.17 billion, up 5.5% on month. Revenues for the third quarter totaled NT$3.29 billion, up 16.26% sequentially and meeting the company’s expectations.

Benefiting from strong IC substrate demand, drill bit maker Topoint Technology saw its consolidated September revenues grow 6.3% to NT$169 million (US$5.26 million), hitting a monthly high for 2009. The company noted orders from Taiwan, China and Korea all have improved. Its Taiwan plant has been running at full utilization since July, and utilization rate at its China plant has also increased to 80%.
