About Semiconductors

A single semiconductor has a as many components as all of the stones in the Great Pyramid in Giza, and today there are more than 100 billion integrated circuits in daily use around the world—that’s equal to the number of stars in our corner of the Milky Way galaxy.  It is truly a modern marvel, a feat of human ingenuity and engineering unmatched by any other industry. Perhaps this is why it can be difficult to fully understand how semiconductors are made, the terms that we use within the industry and the places we can find semiconductors at work in our modern lives.

Use these resources to familiarize yourself with industry terms and frequently asked questions about the industry and semiconductor design and manufacturing processes.
