Samsung and undoubtedly many others are missing as well. –Saruwine (talk) 13:22, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Samsung and Sony are notable exceptions in terms of semiconductor ICs. I don't know enough about LCD technology to see if these qualify as "semiconductor fabs". This page is new and should probably get an "under construction" wikipedia template. TelecomNut (talk) 18:47, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Plant Manufacture[edit]

Often one company builds and uses a fab for a few years, then later sells it to some other company. For example, in 1989 Atmel bought a semiconductor fab in Colorado Springs CO from Honeywell. In other words, "the group that first owned the fab"/"first owner" is often different than "the group that currently owns the fab"/"current owner". Do I put "Atmel" or "Honeywell" in the "Plant Manufacture" column for that fab? Or does "Plant Manufacture" mean something different than "first owner" or "current owner"? --DavidCary (talk) 05:08, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Pls update[edit]

Motorolla dead?[edit]

Should dead companies be here? Did it go to either noew Motorolla? Google? comp.arch (talk) 00:39, 9 November 2013 (UTC)


Global Foundries production values appear to be way off[edit]

For example, Global Foundries website [1] states that their Dresden Fab has a "Maximum Full Capacity: 80,000 300mm wafers/month" while the Wikipedia table shows 80,000,000/month (table value is 80,000 in thousands of wafers/month).

Hynix[edit]

Hynix hasn't operated a fab in Eugene, OR since 2008. To this day, the plant with about 1.2M sq. ft.168.103.50.17 (talk) 01:53, 19 May 2015 (UTC) sits empty and unused.

Yup- and now the vacant fab has been sold to Avago so Hynix doesn't even own the empty fab anymore (I'm pasting ref, not sure why not showing in preview). Should that fab be listed for Avago now or wait until Avago gets it running? If I knew the standard for being on the list I would update it. Kruglick (talk) 20:41, 20 January 2016 (UTC) [4]
