Optiarc ordering from LiteOn?

vbimport

#1

I read that Optiarc is ordering drive production from LiteOn. What does this exactly mean? Optiarc is very young, has it already switched to rebadging LiteOns? Is the long tradition of NEC drive designs followed by rebaadging LiteOns? It would be something we just have to hope not to happen at Plextor by the way.

Where have you read this? Maybe they are using only the production facilities not any component from LiteOn.
