Why is There a Chip Shortage?

One comment on “Why is There a Chip Shortage?

  • Robert Browning says:

    Twenty years ago the ultrapure chemicals needed for die production (ppb of impurities, not ppm), especially water, were not reliably available to the semiconductor industry then abundant in the United States. The notion that a piping system to distribute them had to be kept flowing in a loop, avoiding contamination buildup in cul-de-sac segments leading to taps was among many new concepts everyone in the industry had to absorb.

    Now that public health and political obstacles to trade have required the USA to reinstate this industry, do the people in charge here have the latest technical lore needed to make Made in USA respectable at the scale now needed? Are the Japanese experts at SHECF willing to share everything?
