WAFERNET PRODUCT INFORMATION

Our Products
silicon ingots and wafers

Silicon has been the building block of technology for decades and is present in virtually every electronic device today, from phones to computers to automobiles. Noted as Si in the periodic table of elements, it is found in abundance on planet earth and is a semi-conductor whose electrical properties can be manipulated during wafer production to give it the required electrical properties for any high-tech need.

Silicon wafers, or Si wafers, are sliced into wafers from round cylinders call "ingots" which are grown to specific diameters depending on the size of the silicon wafers that are needed, which currently range from 50mm to 450mm or 2 inches to 18 inches. If you would like to learn more about how Si wafers are made, visit the links that can be found on our Silicon Education pages. Once they are sliced, they are then processed and polished to a mirror finish following either Prime silicon wafer specifications or Test silicon wafer specifications using standards that were developed by industry experts under the Semi International Standards umbrella (www.semi.org/standards).

WaferNet utilizes unique industry alliances to provide silicon wafers in a wide range of diameters, grades, and specifications. Our extensive, on-site inventory allows us to quickly respond to large volume and complex requirements. Match your product needs with WaferNet's inventory by searching our summary of specifications or by filling out a product request form.

50MM SILICON WAFERS

WaferNet offers a handful of standard 50mm silicon wafer options, also referred to as 2" 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.

As diameters have increased and the semiconductor industry has moved to the new larger diameters of silicon wafers, all of the major silicon manufacturers have ceased production of smaller diameter wafers. There are no longer any major silicon manufacturers in the world that are manufacturing 50mm silicon wafers, also known as 2" silicon wafers. This has caused a constriction of supply of 50mm silicon wafers in the marketplace while creating opportunities for smaller secondary players to begin production, though not in the volumes that were manufactured in the past.

These events have conspired to make the sourcing of 50mm silicon wafers a challenge yet these wafers are still critical components for Universities and Research and Development facilities around the globe. We have met the challenge and can meet your demands for 100mm silicon wafers.
