Ode to the Wafer

  • Indium Corporation

  • Like a caterpillar waiting for its transformation, the semiconductor wafer remains dormant until it awakens all the electronic things that bring us joy.


    A wafer just looks like a mirror to someone that doesn’t know what they are looking at, but what they can’t see reflecting back are the long hours and expensive steps it takes to fabricate such a magnificent item.  Wafers are beautiful.  Like a fine painting, an exotic car, or a tall stack of $100 bills.  A wafer with integrated circuitry is a symbol of technology at it’s finest.
