A typical semiconductor foundry

Any of a class of crystalline solids in electrical conductivity between a conductor and an insulator is referred to as Semiconductor. Semiconductors are used in the manufacture of various kinds of electronic devices, such as diodes, transistors, and integrated circuits. A semiconductor material has an electrical conductivity value falling between that of a conductor, such as metallic copper, and an insulator, such as glass. Their resistance falls as their temperature rises; conductors are the opposite....
