How to Build a $20 Billion Semiconductor Fab

Moore's 2nd Law states that the cost of a semiconductor fab doubles about every four years. In the early 1970s a fab cost just $4M to build. Today, modern fabs cost up to $25B.

This week on Construction Physics, Brian Potter looks at what it takes to build a fab.


@Bob Hawkes "Manipulating huge volumes of matter on the atomic level, repeatedly and reliably, 24 hours a day 365 days a year, is an enormously expensive undertaking."
