By Gerald Ondrey  |

Siltronic Samsung Wafer Pte. Ltd. (www.siltronic-samsung-wafer.com), a joint venture (JV) of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (www.samsung.com) and Siltronic AG (www.siltronic.com), today commissioned a new fab in Singapore for the production of 300 mm wafers. After only 18 months of construction, Samsung Electronics, a leader in advanced semiconductor technology, and Siltronic, a subsidiary of Germany’s chemical group Wacker Chemie AG (www.wacker.com), now own one of the world’s largest and most advanced factories for 300 mm wafers. By 2010, the JV should reach a monthly capacity of 300,000 wafers and provide over 800 jobs. The overall investment in this project amounts to $1 billion.
