This wafer size conversion utilizes a completely new tool set. The 300mm program is being developed by the Logic Technology Development group in Oregon. This group will use the baseline process to develop all future logic technology generations. D1C is Intel's first 300mm factory and will be the home of at least the next two technology development generations. D1C, in Oregon, is the first 300mm factory at Intel, and the second in the world. Overall, the new 300mm factory is very different from a traditional factory. The tools are all new designs, footprints are larger, and there is extensive automation and mechanization. The overall size of the wafer carriers (FOUP's) drives the transition from hand delivery to mechanized transportation of material. Intel recently announced that it has obtained functional 0.13 micron silicon from its 300mm fab, D1C.[/i] The new Pentium III's are of .13 micron, code named Tualtin. The Pentium 4 is next to get the small die size.

Hey Frank, that was suuuhweeet. I'm in the biz too down here in TX. We are not automated and we're still 150mm. Nice fab....!

thanks. with that info I can now sabotage the plant & makes millions from blackmail as a global terrorist[whacko]

I dont have a clue what the hell i just saw, but are you saying that that plant is now making smaller faster chips for Intel? And all the robotic handling is supposed to be more efficient? right? Sorry for being a total layman to what I saw. [beer]

Sweet! I work for a company that builds tools for fabs. I'm actually installing a photo-lithography tool at Intel in Phoenix right now. It's a 200mm tool that can be upgraded to 300mm whenever they're ready. My company has lots of guys up at Intel in Portland.

WOW I worked for Intel in the ‘70s and ‘80s. I remember the party they had over FOUR inches.
