Again, UMC doesn't design anything anymore. They only manufacture other people's chips.

So how about memory technologies that don't exist anymore, or at least not in the way it was intended originally?
I'm thinking about stuff like RIMMs. Or how about HDDVD? Or other failed standards?

It's harder to lay a solid boundary somewhere when really thinking about this.
