Objective of SEMI Silicon Manufacturers’ Group (SMG)

As part of the EMG, the purpose of the group is to facilitate collective efforts on issues relating to the silicon industry including the development of market information and statistics about the silicon industry and the semiconductor market. This information will help promote customer awareness of the technical and business issues facing the silicon industry in meeting the semiconductor industry expectations in product quality and value.

The SMG consists of members from from the following companies

  • SK Siltron, Inc
  • Okmetic OY
  • Shin Etsu Handotai, Co., Ltd.
  • Siltronic AG
  • GlobalWafers Co., Ltd.
  • SUMCO Corp.
  • Wafer Works 

Silicon wafers are the fundamental building material for semiconductors, which in turn, are vital components of virtually all electronics goods, including computers, telecommunications products, and consumer electronics. The highly engineered thin round disks are produced in various diameters (from 1 inch to 12 inch) and serve as the substrate material on which most semiconductor devices or "chips" are fabricated.
