WaferNet offers numerous standard 450mm silicon wafer options, also referred to as 18" silicon wafers, for our customer's urgent needs. These are considered stocking parts and ship from our shelf in San Jose, California and usually within the same day as the request.
As silicon wafer manufacturing technology has progressed, driven primarily by the needs of the integrated circuit "chip" manufacturers, silicon wafer sizes have gradually increased in size from 25mm silicon wafers to the current largest available diameter of 450mm silicon wafers. The larger the diameter of the silicon wafer, the larger the surface area and the more chips that can be manufactured from a single wafer. More chips per silicon wafer equals lower cost per chip for the chip maker.
