The BrightSpots 450-mm Forum is now closed
The transition to 450-mm wafers is expected to be a tremendous undertaking for the entire semiconductor industry ecosystem. Even accounting for the potentially substantial cost-savings through higher productivity by moving to 450-mm wafers, the funding issues, timing, and manufacturing process challenges are serious concerns. A transition to 450 mm will require unprecedented coordinated efforts across the entire supply chain.
