Micron has just announced a gigantic new 93,000-square-foot facility in Atlanta, Georgia, USA -- a new state-of-the-art memory design center that opens up in January 2022.
The new memory design facility will see Micron having offices, a huge data center, and development operations in Atlanta. Micron is expected to open up around 500 new jobs across various STEM disciplines, which will include memory and storage R&D, computer hardware, electrical and electronic engineering, modeling and simulation development, and business support roles.
