Some damages reported by ON Semiconductor

Updated reports confirm that no employees have been injured as a result of the earthquake or tsunami. However, as is the case for most companies, there are some trouble with damages and power shortage.
"Our first priority is, as always, the personal safety and well being of those impacted by the event. We are currently assessing facility and customer impact. As we address the safety concerns on the local level, in parallel our global business continuity team will assess the infrastructure stability, impact on the work in progress (WIP) and inventory levels in the various channels to determine the status of supply continuity", the company states.
