A Look at How Memory Cards are Made

Lexar posted this interesting behind-the-scenes video showing how they make memory cards from start to finish. May the ingenuity and engineering-prowess of man amaze you and cause you to appreciate your memory cards more. Imagine what it would be like to watch this video back in the early 1900s…

    We take so much for granted each time we load a memory card into our camera.

    I used to work in Semiconductor industry as a robot tech for Qimonda in Virginia. The fad i worked in made memory as well. We had the same type of robots that this fab has.

    If this plant is is UTAH why were ALL the workers oriental?

    @ernie – If you paid attention, it said once the chips were manufactured at Micron they were shipped to Asia for packaging into the various formats (USB drives, memory cards, etc…).

    The chip creation is in UTAH, that is then shipped abroad to be assembled. If you’d watched it and not skipped through you’d of seen this :p

    Holy cow, you mean Lexar actually manufactures in the US? Shocking. Most tech is from Asia nowadays.

    Lexar CF cards seem to be the most reliable cards, perhaps the manufactured bit in the US explains it.

    Crazy though some peolple have to fold these little pieces of packaging paper we bin straight ahead!
