Micron technology is an American based company, which holds expertise in the development and production of semiconductor devices. The types of devices it manufactures include DRAM, SSD, SDRAM, flash memory, and CMOS chips. The company has a wide range of products in its business portfolio and operates under two big brands, known as Crucial Technology and Lexar Media. Micron technology has worked together with Intel to develop the technology of IMFlash, through which the product NANDflash memory was created.

The company was formed in 1978 with the aim of providing design consultation services to its clients. The company’s main focus is on manufacturing products which can be provided at low cost to its customers. The company acquired the memory business of Texas Instruments in 1998, followed by Toshiba in 2001. These acquisitions helped the company make its presence known at an international level, helping it expand into new territories like, Japan, Italy, and Singapore.

The company incorporated its subsidiary, Micron Computers, to manufacture and build personal computers. The two companies, parent and subsidiary, merged in the year 1996, and came to be known as Micron Electronics. Over the years, it has acquired many companies, like NetFrame Systems Incorporated, and Rendition.

In 2008, the company launched Aptina Imaging, part of which was sold to TPG and Riverwood Capital in the following year. Recently, the company has become one of the largest shareholders of Inotera Memories and plans to buy Elpida Memory. This is a strategic move by the company, which will increase its market share by two folds.
