Semiconductor Process Development: Finding a Faster Way to Profitability

By: Katherine Gambino, Strategic Accounts Manager

Intel Fab

Building a chip fabrication facility requires billions of dollars in investment for land, buildings, processing equipment, chemical and hazardous material safety, not to mention the deployment of hundreds of highly experienced process engineering and manufacturing personnel. Bringing up an advanced semiconductor process in any fab, new or established, is a several-hundred-million dollar effort, typically requiring two or more years of experimentation with process equipment and process recipes, led by engineers with years of process integration and chip manufacturing expertise.
