Hitachi Kokusai Electric
Hitachi Kokusai Electric, a supplier of CVD, diffusion, and ALD equipment, is among the world's 10 BEST Chip Making Suppliers in VLSIresearch's 2015 10 BEST Large Suppliers of Chip Making Equipment and the 2015 THE BEST Fab Equipment Suppliers.
FormFactor, a leading supplier of semiconductor probe cards, prevails as the top probe card supplier in the VLSIresearch 2015 THE BEST Subsystems Suppliers.
Silicon demand wafer size favors larger wafer sizes. 300mm already accounts
for almost two-thirds of all wafer fab manufacturing and this will continue to grow through 2015. 450mm will account for 14% of all chip production by 2020.
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.
