Semiconductor production – one of the most complex manufacturing ever
Semiconductor production is characterized by the highest complexity and the fastest succession of new technologies.
Starting with the silicon base material to the finished module, the number of production steps can be well over 1000, which are carried out on hundreds of different production lines.
The individual work steps, with which smallest structures (up to <100nm) are generated, must be carried out in so-called clean rooms. Here, in a volume of air of one cubic foot, at most one dust particle larger than 0.5 μm may occur.
It is a true Herculean task to meet the varying demands for high yield and short lead times with minimal cost on a large scale.
Over the decades, a number of production methods have been developed or adapted from other industries.
