Cleanrooms for Semiconductor Wafer Manufacturing - Farrukh Khan

Semiconductor wafer manufacturing is an important industry in the present day for many countries. Demand for semiconductor chips has grown steadily in the past decades and multinational companies in the business operate on a global scale with coordinated manufacturing and distribution. A semiconductor wafer manufacturing facility can cost up $ 2.7 billion and needs sophisticated equipment, services and environmental control systems including cleanrooms in order to increase the yield of the semiconductor wafers. In this report, an attempt is made to study the issues related to providing the appropriate services and equipment to support the semiconductor wafer manufacturing process, along with the issues related to the design and testing of facilities.
