The company said on Monday it will reinstate production at the facility, which is located about 40 miles north-west of Tokyo, in stages: in May, several lines; by mid-July, full production, therefore ensuring shipments by September.

Texas Instruments warned that this schedule could be delayed if the power grid in the region remains unstable.
