Top executives of Boise's Micron Technology Inc. visited the Nasdaq stock exchange Friday to ring the opening bell at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New York's Times Square.

The ceremony marked Micron's July 30 acquisition of Japan's Elpida Memory Inc. Buying Elpida made Micron the No. 2 memory chip maker in the world. The purchase added Elpida's headquarters in Tokyo and large plants in Akita and Hiroshima to Micron's portfolio. It also gave Micron a controlling interest in Rexchip Electronics Corp. in Taiwan.

The Micron executives posed to have their photos taken by a Nasdaq photographer.
