  • Manufacturing process starts with crystal growing: High-purity, semiconductor-grade silicon is melted in a crystal growing furnace and grown into a single crystal. The crystal is then cut into smaller sections for further processing. The work involves controlling and monitoring the furnace processes as well as assisting with the different stages of these processes.
  • The crystal is cut into wafers: Silicon ingots are taken into wafering facilities where they are sliced into wafers. Other tasks include various measurements and adjustments as well as taking care of operator-based equipment maintenance.
  • Significant part of the process takes place in the clean room: Big part of the process takes place in the clean room, since the most important quality criterion is cleanliness. There are a number of stages in wafer processing that take place in cleanrooms of different classes. Silicon wafer batches are processed further, washed and inspected using a variety of automatic or semi-automatic equipment.
  • After packaging the wafers are sent to the customers: The processing of silicon wafers often involve various further processing steps. Finally, the wafers are inspected, packaged, and delivered to the customer as a raw material for the manufacture of MEMS, sensors, RF devices, or power devices.
