Apple Secure Wafer Fab in San Jose, California.
World renowned company Apple inc has bought a wafer fab in North First Street, San Jose, California, directly next door to Samsung Semiconductor.
They’ve purchased the building from Analog Devices and mixed-signal chip vendor Maxim Integrated Products Inc.
Apple have paid $18.2 million for the huge 70,000 square foot building which ARTEG described as being suitable for prototype pilot, and low volume manufacturing.
The vast structure has also been described as operational, and included 197 pieces of chip manufacturing equipment from such makers as Applied Materials, Hitachi and Novellus.
Apple isn’t intending on using the fab for production of its main chips, but will utilise the facility for R&D in other components such as mixed-signal devices, MEMS and image sensors, along with work on producing packaging.
