Serving as the bedrock of the technology sector for decades, silicon is present in virtually every electronic device, from phones and computers to automobiles. Noted as SI in the periodic table of elements, silicon is a semi-conductor whose electrical properties can be modified during wafer production to serve any specific high-tech purpose.
Silicon wafers, also known as SI wafers, are sliced from round cylinders called “ingots” which are grown to specific diameters depending on the size of the silicon wafers that are needed. Once they are sliced, they are then processed and polished following the specifications for either Prime silicon wafers or Test silicon wafers using the industry standards developed by experts under the Semi International Standards umbrella.
