February 13, 2012 — Yole Developpement released "European Microelectronic Fabs Database & Report 2012," a database and report on the European microelectronics and microsystem manufacturing fabs, pilot lines, and major R&D organizations.
The database details fab locations, products, technologies, manufacturing facilities, and financial information. Fab data includes employee counts, sales figures, capacity info, and more.
The database covers 50 countries, extending throughout Europe and the Middle East area (EMEA), and Russia. There are 300+ fabs in Europe, Yole reports. It includes major changes that have taken place since 2007, such as fab closures and new investments.
The European Microelectronic Fabs Database & Report 2012 includes:
- IC semiconductor
- Micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS)/MST
- Optoelectronics (LEDs)
- RF devices
- Power devices
- Concentrated photovoltaics (CPV)
- Printed electronics
The database can be used to understand the European fab environment, and assess business opportunities in the European and Middle-East market.
