FABS AND PROCESSES Keith Barr 30 Different Fabs, Different Missions The field could be divided into any number of camps, but I see there being three basic classes of IC fabs. By the term “class” I do not refer to the level of air purity, as in a “class 10 fab environment,” but instead to the level of economic scale and technological capability. Class 1 fabs are constantly driving toward finer geometries. 09 μ (90 nm). These fabs are the most expensive in the world, easily costing over $3 billion for a facility that can produce thirty thousand 8-in.

Finally, you must recognize that no fab today believes they can make money by doing business with small-scale customers. I suggest you take as little of their time as possible asking simple questions, for this will only reinforce their assumptions about you being a waste of their time. Remember, you’re only one of a growing number of small businesses that are trying to gain access to the playground; don’t wreck it for the rest of us. Beware of fabs that produce class 2 products but aspire to, or fool themselves into thinking that class 1 status is around the corner.

ECONOMICS Keith Barr 43 Device Overhead and Yield The driving force toward finer geometries is the economics of producing very complex and fast designs. Certainly, as device dimensions reduce, so do load capacitances. The capacitive loading of a gate input is reduced at smaller geometries, despite the fact that TOX becomes thinner, making smaller geometry circuits faster, while showing lower dynamic power consumption.
