Abstract:
Follow-Up to 2007 Survey Where 40% Said 450mm Wafers Will Never Happen

Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. Conducts 2nd Annual Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology Survey

PLEASANTON, CA | Posted on April 23rd, 2008

Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. (WWK), a cost & productivity management software and consulting services company, announced today the start of its 2008 survey on equipment and process timing in the semiconductor industry. The survey results will be consolidated and provided to all participants free of charge. The survey form can be downloaded from the WWK web site at: www.wwk.com/2008survey.pdf.

Last year's survey showed that 50% or more of respondents expect to see the following manufacturing technologies in production between 2008 and 2010:

-- Adaptive Test
-- High K gate dielectrics
-- Metal gates
-- Equipment with energy saving "sleep" states


Between 2010 and 2012, 50% or more of respondents expect to see:

-- 193 high index immersion lithography
-- Wafer-level reliability testing
-- Damascene gate formation


However, survey respondents did not expect to see the following technologies in production until 2013 or beyond:

-- EUV lithography
-- Imprint lithography
-- 450mm wafers


Daren Dance, WWK's Vice President of Technology, commented, "We were not surprised that the most frequent response to the question about 450mm wafer timing was 2013 or beyond but we were surprised that nearly 40% of respondents indicated that 450mm wafers would never happen in production manufacturing. This year's survey will look to see if those opinions, and others, have changed."

Based on the results of the 2007 survey, WWK initiated a detailed cost study of projected 450mm wafer costs compared to an equivalent 300mm process. Details are found in "An Economic Comparison of 450mm and 300mm Wafer Fabs," Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. 2008, wwk.com/pr450.html.
