Silicon Demand

Silicon Demand

Wafer demand for semiconductors by device type tends to be evenly split over time. Logic/MPU and memory ICs stay evenly balanced due to system architecture. The same is true for analog ICs and discrete semiconductors. Read more

Trends by Node

Silicon wafer demand for chip making continues to favor tighter nodes with greater growth. Some say Moore's Law is dead, but the data proves it wrong. Devices with dimensions smaller than 20nm will consume more than half of all silicon by 2020. Read more

450mm: Making the leap without slipping on an icy semiconductor cycle

Why 450mm Wafers. Wafer Size Transitions . Preliminary conclusions of the ECís 450mm study. 450mm does not look to be the expensive disaster 300mm was, but it wonít be cheap either. Comparing the 300mm Ramp with 450. What equipment suppliers will spend developing 450mm. When compared to the cost of a fab. Cost of developing 450mm on a square-CM basis. But there are problems when you contrast 450m...
