Time: Presentation at 6:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: Intersil Corp., 1001 Murphy Ranch Road, Milpitas
RSVP: from website

The transition to 450mm is required if the semiconductor industry is to keep up with the historic annual growth in wafer fab capacity. Since the 450mm wafers have 2.25x the surface area compared to the 300mm, the number of ICs per wafer almost (more…)
