Micron Technology is under investigation by the US Department of Justice. The RAM maker is suspected of alleged anticompetitive practices. The investigation is part of a larger, industry wide enquiry into anticompetitive practices. Other chip manufacturers such as Infineon and Samsung have also been contacted as part of the investigation.
Micron has received a grand jury subpoena from the US District Court for the Northern District of California seeking information related to the investigation. Speculation is mounting that Micron and other chip manufacturers are being accused of involvement in illegal dumping practices.
A spokesperson for Micron stated that the company would cooperate fully with the investigation.
