of the silicon wafer

As the Facilities 450mm Consortium members look to enable scaleable technology, independent of wafer size, it is important to remember how the semiconductor industry reached this point and what are the economic factors that drive such an evolution.

World’s Leading

nanoelectronic facility companies

At the core of the Facilities 450mm Consortium are its members. The consortium comprises many of the world’s leading nanoelectronics facility companies, including Air Liquide, Busch, CH2M, CS CLEAN SOLUTIONS, Edwards, M+W Group, Pfeiffer Vacuum, Ovivo and Swagelok.


our organization’s pillars

The Facilities 450mm Consortium (F450C) is a first-of-its-kind partnership at SUNY Poly’s Albany site that is leading the global effort to design and build next-generation 450mm computer chip fabrication facilities.
