SEMI FabView is a new 24/7 online platform with content derived from the SEMI Fab database. It offers the summary as well as detailed information about fabs from a laptop or mobile device. It is essentially an online version of the Excel-based fab database that is updated with greater frequency with a user-friendly interface. Fab data include region, start of construction, operation, construction, and equipment spending, capacity, wafer sizes, product types, geometries, etc.
Short Introduction to Fab View
The information for the fab reports and forecasts is compiled from various sources in the industry including publicly available information such as capital spending plans, fab plans, ramp schedules, and technology roadmaps.
Source data are verified across an extensive network of industry contacts. These data are used in modeling for each company and facility, incorporating various economic indicators and best educated estimates.
The report uses a bottom-up approach, tracking projects per cleanroom facility but uses also a top down analysis by company, region, and industry segment.
Content details include capital expenditure for construction and equipment, capacities, technologies used, product types, and wafer sizes.
