Things You Must Know About Silicon Wafers
  • Silicon Specialist

  • Those of us who have studied geology know that
    silicon is the second most abundant element on
    earth. Although it has a metallic appearance, it
    is not considered real metal, because Silicon
    Wafer is semi-conductor. And, for the same reason
    it has become the foundation for technology
    revolution in todays era. If you are looking for
    a high-quality semiconductor material which
    offers a wide range of benefits, then silicon
    wafer products are perfect for you. This article
    entails things you must know about silicon
    wafers, and benefits of using silicon wafers.
  • Silicon wafers are the basis for our gadgets such
    as computers, smart-phones, and televisions.
    Silicon Carbide Wafers are the foundation for LED
    components. Integrated Circuits, ICs, which are
    found in all digital devices, are made from
    silicon wafer manufacturers.

Facts About Silicon Wafers
  • Since they are made from silicon, which is a
    semiconductor, they are also known as
    Semiconductors Wafers for having properties of
    both a conductor and an insulator. These can
    conduct electricity partially. Many other
    elements, such as indium phosphide, germanium,
    quartz, and sapphire, can also be used to create
  • Silicon semiconductor wafers are primarily used
    in making integrated circuits which lay the
    foundation of internal workings of modern
    technology devices such as smart-phones, TV
    screens and computers. These integrated circuits
    are small chips fully capable of performing all
    functions of larger circuits of the past, and
    many more. The popular LED screens have Silicon
    Carbide wafers as their integral component.
    Silicon Carbide wafer is a popular substrate for
    growing GaN devices, and also serve as a heat
    spreader in high-power LEDs.

  • Furthermore, silicon wafers enable integrated
    circuits to perform a large variety of actions
    efficiently because of their microscopic
    patterns. This has not only made modern
    technology more efficient, but highly portable
    too. This explains why the latest devices are
    smaller in size yet smarter in functioning.
    High-power lasers solar panels are created using
    Silicon wafers, while Silicon Carbide Wafers are
    used for heat spreading in LED components.
  • Silicon Wafer Reclaim comprises of an ingot is
    produced after applying heat to purified silicon.
    The ingot is grown to the ideal size before
    slicing it further into thin wafers for
    manageable use. These wafers are used to produce
    microscopic circuit patterns, which are required
    by smart devices and electronic parts. After
    wafer polishing, it is combined with the rest of
    the electronic components.

Benefits of Silicon Wafer
  • Variety of Sizes
  • Silicon wafers come in a variety of diameters.
    Initially, in 1960, silicon semiconductor wafer
    had only a diameter of 1-inch. However, nowadays,
    the diameters of silicon wafers range from 11 to
    18 inches. This means they can easily accommodate
    in any size of device.

Portable Devices
  • In the past Vacuum Tubes were used for the same
    purpose for which we use Silicon Semiconductors
    these days. However, they were bulky making the
    devices size big. Today, due to the small size
    of integrated circuits, the size of devices has
    also become portable. This is possible because of
    the use of silicon wafers in all digital devices.

Excellent Semiconducting Abilities
  • The reason silicon has become the backbone of
    most of electronic parts and devices today is
    because of its superb semiconducting abilities.
    After purification to a certain level, it can be
    at an excellent electrical grade.

Hard Metalloid
  • Silicon is known to be a hard metalloid. This
    guarantees that silicon products cannot be
    damaged easily. Silicon is primarily used for its
    durability, resistance and its ability to
    withstand extreme temperatures without
    compromising its efficiency.

Ideal for High-Powered Electrical Devices
  • Silicon wafers are ideal for high-powered
    electrical devices because they offer wide
    resistivity spectrum, high minority carrier
    lifespan, and radial resistivity deviation. They
    are also popular for their reduced resistivity

Silicon Wafer Reclaim
  • Silicon wafer can be processed to lead to Silicon
    Wafer Reclaim. It is a multi-step process that
    transforms a used wafer with multiple layers of
    various materials into a qualification wafer.

  • Silicon wafers are highly popular because of
    their efficiency and size. The demand for thin
    silicon wafers is steadily rising, which compels
    silicon manufacturers to improve the way they
    produce wafers, for more slimmer and smart ICs.
    If you are looking for high-quality, thin silicon
    wafers, Silicon Specialists are the perfect place
    to purchase from. Contact us today to get quality
    wafers at an affordable price.
