ABOUT THE ELECTRONICS AND
Imagine life without the Internet, smart phones or computers. This is the huge impact of electronics on our lives.
Miniature electronic brains – also called semiconductor chips – are embedded in almost all modern tech gadgets.
These chips help us live, work, play and learn better.
THE SEMICONDUCTOR VALUE CHAIN
Building semiconductors is a complicated process of R&D, manufacturing, testing, quality control, packaging, distribution and marketing. The entire chain can be divided into 9 categories.
- Product company/Fabless Design House/R&D
- Wafer Fabrication Plant (Fab)/Foundry
- Integrated Device Manufacturer (IDM)
- Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test (OSAT) and Test Services
- Equipment Manufacturer
- Materials & Chemical Supplier
- Electronics Manufacturing Services(EMS)/ Original Device Manufacturer (ODM)
- Other services
- Research & Academia
