TOYOTA ACCELERATES DESIGN-IN BUSINESS WITH FOREIGN SEMICONDUCTOR MAKERS

TOYOTA ACCELERATES DESIGN-IN BUSINESS WITH FOREIGN SEMICONDUCTOR MAKERS
 TOYOTA CITY, Japan, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move to accelerate design-in business involving foreign semiconductor makers, Toyota Motor Corporation and eight of its domestic electronic components suppliers announced today they will work with seven U.S. semiconductor makers to develop 22 new design-in semiconductor items for Toyota. The new agreements could boost Toyota's purchase of foreign design-in semiconductors to as much as $35 million in fiscal 1994, more than 37 percent of the $95 million the automaker plans to spend on foreign semiconductors annually by that period.
 The 22 items announced today include input and output buffers and analog-digital converters for engine control, 8-bit computers for four-wheel drive control, and diodes for air conditioners.
 The announcement came at the end of two days of one-on-one business meetings that followed the second Toyota Semiconductor Forum held in Long Beach, Calif. earlier this week. Consisting of technical presentations and presentations on balancing cost and quality, 21 major U.S. semiconductor makers, including Motorola, Intel, and Texas Instruments, attended the forum.
 Over the past three years, Toyota and its domestic electronic component makers have worked aggressively to increase business with U.S. companies. Development of 24 design-in semiconductor items with foreign makers has already been completed. Including the new items, a total of 40 design-in items is currently slated for development with foreign semiconductor makers. Purchases of foreign semiconductors by Toyota and its electronic components suppliers amounted to $31 million for fiscal 1991. In fiscal 1994, this figure will have more than tripled to reach around $95 million annually.
