Singapore-based semiconductor integration startup Silicon Box has launched its US$2 billion advanced semiconductor manufacturing foundry in Tampines. The factory, which is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), is expected to create over 1,000 jobs and boost Singapore’s position as a global hub for semiconductor manufacturing.
Silicon Box’s proprietary integration technology uses chiplets, which are small, modular pieces of silicon that can be assembled together to create larger, more complex chips. This approach offers a number of advantages over traditional chip manufacturing methods, including lower costs, shorter design cycles, and improved performance.
The new foundry will be used to manufacture chiplets for a variety of applications, including artificial intelligence, data centers, and electronic vehicles. Silicon Box is already working with a number of leading technology companies on chiplet-based projects, and the new foundry will allow the company to meet the growing demand for these products.
In addition to its manufacturing capabilities, Silicon Box also offers a range of design and engineering services to help customers develop and bring their chiplet-based products to market.
The company’s team of experts has a deep understanding of the chiplet ecosystem and can provide customers with the support they need to succeed.
The launch of Silicon Box’s new foundry is a significant milestone for the semiconductor industry. The company’s innovative technology has the potential to revolutionise the way chips are designed and manufactured, and the new foundry will help to meet the growing demand for high-performance semiconductors.
