TOKYO -- Toshiba will adopt technology that is seen significantly lowering production costs of NAND flash memory, one of the restructuring company's core businesses.

The Tokyo-based conglomerate had been researching nanoimprint lithography (NIL) technology together with Dai Nippon Printing and Canon. Toshiba plans to allocate part of the 860 billion yen ($7.9 billion) it will spend over three years on the semiconductor business toward setting up flash memory production lines that utilize NIL.
