Semico 2020 Fab Database now Available

Semico's Fab Database report is a great resource for tracking changes among advanced as well as mature fabs. You can also sort the data by region or by type of products. Semico's report includes updates on fabs owned by foundries, memory manufacturers, IDMs, and research facilities. The database itself includes detailed information about each fab, including operating status, location, process, products, wafer size, capacity, and more. Semico updates it biannually with a summary of which changes each fab has made over the previous six months. 
Semico tracks over 1000 semiconductor fabs in the Fab Database, including those that are planned, under construction, installing new equipment, active, closing, or closed. Over 300 individual companies or institutions are mentioned in the database. 
Some key changes in the fab marketplace discussed by this report include:

  • Magnachip closed the sale its of 200mm Fab 4 to Key Foundry and will continue on a fab-lite basis running power products at Fab 3.
  • Sandia National Labs is converting its silicon fab to 200 mm wafers, ensuring sustained production through 2040 for national security applications. 
  • Cree Semiconductor is building an 8” SiC power and RF fab in Marcy, New York to be ready for production in 1Q22. 
  • Powerchip plans to begin construction on the first phase of its new fab site in Tongluo Industrial Park, Taiwan in 2Q 2021.

This study includes a Word document as well as an Excel spreadsheet, "Semico Fab Database.xls", which encompasses the most current version of our fab database. This report provides a snapshot of a "living" document, as fab statuses and plans are announced all the time. Semico tracks these changes on an ongoing basis and issues an updated report biannually. Companies are only included in this writeup if they have made announcements regarding their fabs.
