About the Electronics and Semiconductor Industry

The Semiconductor Value Chain

Building semiconductors is a complicated process of R&D, manufacturing, testing, quality control, packaging, distribution and marketing. The entire chain can be divided into 9 categories.

    1. Fabless IC Design House
    2. Integrated Device Manufacturer (IDM)
    3. Foundry/Wafer Fabrication Plant (FAB)
    4. Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly (OSAT) & Test Service
    5. Equipment Manufacturer
    6. Materials & Chemical Supplier
    7. Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS)/ Original Device Manufacturer (ODM)
    8. Other Services
    9. Research & Academia
