Silicon wafer technology takes another step

October 24, 2017

It never ceases to amaze me how coincidences can occur.

Research and development, emerging technologies and intellectual property always interests me and today Solid-State Technology published by Penn Well hit the nail on the head three times straight.

First article to grab my attention was about how flexible electronics is a revolution in the electronics industry.

Secondly, there was an article about the move from 300mm to 450mm wafers and how this is affecting the semiconductor industry.

And on the last page was an article about how President Obama in the US signed the most significant overhaul of their painting laws in 50 years.

For a brief understanding of the semiconductor fabrication process and the size, scale and design of ballroom-style cleanroom fabrication plants, have a look at this video by Intel.
